Atmosphere | A Zed & Two Noughts

A Zed & Two Noughts

Thursday 28th September 2017, 7:30 for 8pm. £10
Alt-w LAB, City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh

Peter Greenaway's visually stunning 1985 film was the first with his "most important collaborator" cinematographer Sacha Vierny. A story of twin zoologists Oswald and Oliver Deuce who, after losing their wives in a freak car collision with a swan outside the zoo where they work, develop a curious attachment to the car's driver Alba, who survived.

Developed in collaboration with DCN Design Fellow Susana Cámara Leret, this is our first Atmosphere event in the Alt-w LAB and our first as part of Scalarama. Punctuated by the dulcet tones of Sir David Attenborough and the influence of Johannes Vermeer, the film is a rumination on life, love and sex and the inevitability of birth, death and decay.

NEoN Digital Arts Festival

Material Speculation: ISIS

7th-12th November 2017. RSVP
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.

Sanctuary

23rd-24th September 2017, noon to noon. RSVP
Murray's Monument, A712, Dumfries & Galloway.

Sanctuary is a public art event within the Dark Skies Park of Dumfries & Galloway. This 24-hour site-specific laboratory explores privacy, identity, place and space beyond the reach of networks. Installations, radio transmissions, screenings and performance serve to create a temporary community.

Click here for the 2017 list of artists.

The Dark Skies Park is a specially designated area that suffers from no light pollution. It is remote, beautiful and crucially for the artists also ‘electronically dark’. At the core of the event will be The Dark Outside FM, a hyper-local radio station that premieres new work and then deletes it.

Atmosphere is our most popular research programme. First premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, it re-imagines the concept of Atmospheric movie theaters from the 1920s and 30s.

Each expanded screening uses a team of guest artists and creatives to work with technology old and new, multi-sensory interactives and live elements too. Expect some smoke and mirrors, before the bells and whistles.
