MEDIA ARCHAEOLOGY: EXCAVATIONS
WEST WARD WORKS
NEoN proposes that artists are future media archaeologists, recorders of our current information-based society, and time-travellers highlighting the continued relevance of our long past. This exhibition will show how digital art and technology is understood now and will be in the future, in the creation of shared cultural experiences. NEoN anticipates that by putting artists’ concerns at the heart of our investigation of technological media, a more complex picture of the material culture of the digital age will emerge.
Join us as we dig for the digital, brush the dirt off the non-material, and excavate the Internet.
