NEoN 2019

NEoN

4th-10th November 2019. RSVP
Across the City of Dundee.

A tide of change is sweeping across the globe - from immigration to the rise in nationalism - socio-political landscapes are increasingly subject to crisis. Unparalleled events have elicited an unprecedented response as activists and community groups mobilise.

This year the NEoN Digital Arts Festival will ask; How do we protest differently in a digital age? Now more than ever, we need to learn from the ways artists use digital technology to better understand how to engage with and react against the world around us.

From October 1st 2019, on rotation. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

Charles Young is best known for his Alt-w supported project Paperholm, where he designed, made, photographed and animated a tiny model building daily out of paper for one thousand days. His looping moving images explore ideas around the perception of space, imagination and memory.

In this new series of HD animations, a paper model of the neighbourhood that surrounds the Music Hall is shown from varying angles and different heights. This base of the existing city has been added to with a layer of invented structures and occupation that are bound to delight.

In this map of the stars directly above the Music Hall, updated live as time passes, the fleeting presence of visitors generates unique abstract animations. By taking this stellar data set and a computer algorithm called reaction/diffusion, they literally bring the heavens alive.

Restless, vital patterns emerge looking like cells, fingerprints, fungi, animal markings or brain cross-sections. They remind us that all life originates in the stars. Each iteration hints at the fragile balance between growth and death on which beauty, harmony and meaning depend.

Lauriston Castle, 2 Cramond Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 6AD

You're invited to a weekend in the country on the estate of Sir William McCordle. But better beware, secrets will be revealed, and it appears that everyone, above and below stairs, has an axe to grind with our distinguished host.

Director Robert Altman brought together a fine ensemble cast for this 2001 production. Written by Julian Fellows, it's a study of the British class system in the 1930s, all wrapped up in a murder mystery worthy of Agatha Christie herself.

Cycle 13 Alt-w Production Award - Cliona Harmey
www.clionaharmey.info

April to June 2019, daily. FREE
Music Hall, Union Street, Aberdeen AB10 1QS

Explore the romance and reality of the sea courtesy of Aberdeen Harbour and the MarineTraffic API. By tracking the location of ships, the constantly updated names of the most recently arrived and most recently departed vessels are juxtaposed on the Music Hall's Stepping In Space screen, creating a form of poetic writing.

Irish artist Cliona Harmey's work attempts to interrupt the speed of this instantaneous data stream and return it to the speed of movement of real entities in space. The names include references to Scots and Nordic culture conjuring up historical figures and distant places in this localised iteration of her previous work Dublin Ships (2015).
