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?
