NEoN 2017

Previous NEoN projects:

2017:  NEoN expanded on it being Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, and unveiled hidden histories by working with artists who use the current (and controversial) practice of ‘media archaeology’. NEoN proposed that artists are future media archaeologists, recorders of our current information-based society, and time-travellers highlighting the continued relevance of our long past. We dug for the digital, brushed the dirt off the non-material, and excavated the internet.

Weave worked with artists Nicky Bird (UK), Morehshin Allahyari (USA/IRAN) and Claire Hentschker (USA) as part of the group exhibition ‘Media Archaeology; Excavations’ to explore the festival theme.
