LIFESPANS

What is fleeting and what will last forever?

In Scotland’s Year of Young People, NEoN will envision the paths of ‘digital natives’, those born into an internet and digitally-enabled world. We’ll investigate how this affects our perception of lifespans – considering both our socio-digital lives online and our real-world lives offline – as we’re propelled into a technologically-enhanced future.

City Art Centre, 2 Market Street, Edinburgh EH1 1DE

During his residency filmmaker Sven Werner created an installation and accompanying audio work. It tells the story of a man who, to his own surprise, finds he has a peculiar gift: he is able to recognise and inhabit the blind angles of people’s attention so that he becomes to all eyes invisible.

He learns to move past hundreds of people every day while staying entirely unnoticed. He slowly becomes accustomed to inhabiting these hidden spaces and empty folds of daily life, until he decides to abandon his mundane existence to live only under the radar of the public’s attention.
