Call for Proposals from Furtherfield and NEoN Digital Arts Festival
BLOCKCHAIN ART COMMISSION: The CryptoDetectorist – hoards, coins
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?
