27th July to 27th August 2017, Wed-Sun 10am-5pm. FREE
City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh EH1 1DE

Susana Cámara Leret and Mike Thompson's art, design and research practice explores metabolic processes, bodies and spaces. They experiment with the meanings and values that can be derived from alternative ways of experiencing built and mediated environments.

As Thought Collider they are motivated by emergent nature cultures. Their artworks span various media, generating experiential insights that confront the norm. This exhibition, in the new Alt-w LAB for creative technology, is the first solo presentation of their work in the UK.

NEoN Digital Arts Festival

7th-12th November 2017. FREE
Across the City of Dundee.

Media Archaeology

NEoN will expand on it being Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, and will unveil hidden histories by working with artists who use the current (and controversial) practice of ‘media archaeology’.

Media archaeologists uncover and reconsider the obsolete, persistent, and hidden material cultures of the technological age - from big data software algorithms to tiny silicon chips.

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.

FOUND
Ziggy Campbell, Simon Kirby and Tommy Perman

From the 8th July 2016, daily 10am-5pm.
National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh

Cybraphon, the autonomous emotional robot band, is now part of the National Museum of Scotland's collection. The artist collective FOUND gifted Cybraphon to the nation in 2013. It can now be seen as a key bridging work between the new art & design and science & technology galleries.

Cybraphon obsessively googles itself every 15 seconds to see how popular it is. The results affect its emotional state which in turn affects its playing style. Twenty-five antique instruments and 60 robotic actuators then play music that FOUND has composed for each emotion.
