Call for Proposals from Furtherfield and NEoN Digital Arts Festival
BLOCKCHAIN ART COMMISSION: The CryptoDetectorist – hoards, coins & trades
Deadline for submissions 4th September
For exhibition 9th November
Fee and production costs £2500
While archaeology has often understood cultures through excavations of hoards
and coins, what will today’s digital currencies tell future archaeologists
about the way we live and trade?
This co-commission with NEoN Digital Arts Festival forms part of Furtherfield’s
ongoing investigations into the politics of the blockchain, smart contracts,
and cryptocurrency systems like Ethereum. It invites artists to imagine
themselves as future media archaeologists, as recorders of our current
information-based society, and as time-travelers highlighting the continued
relevance of our long past. Will you dig for the digital, brush the dirt off
the non-material, or excavate the internet?
