NEoN Digital Arts Festival 2012: Investigating, encouraging and exploring the movement between the physical and virtual environment.

NEoN – the international digital arts festival – returns to Dundee this November featuring moving image, performance, music and technology driven arts. This year’s theme involves exploring movement between physical and virtual environments.

North East of North (NEoN) is a seven-day international digital arts festival based in Dundee featuring moving image, performance, music and technology driven arts. The festival delivers a packed programme of talks, workshops, exhibitions, commissions, screenings, performance and more at many of Dundee’s cultural, business and public spaces. Encouraging an  exchange of knowledge in areas such as new business models, digital developments and latest production techniques, NEoN expands the notion that art, digital media and gaming can come together to explore new collaborations, opening up new and exciting projects.

NEoN returns to Dundee this November and we’re excited to reveal that the 2012 programme will run between 4th-10th November with the theme of movement whether that be digital information moving round a city or exploring movement between the physical and virtual.

To continue the festival’s success into its fourth consecutive year, organisers are hard at work working closely with many local enterprises, ensuring that audiences will be able to attend and take part in an extensive programme. Workshops, talks and the popular Pecha Kucha event will accompany exhibitions, performance and sound installations.

Donna Holford-Lovell, Curator of NEoN says that, “Audiences can now ‘roam’ in ways never imagined. Their experiences stretch across remote desktops and into virtualised applications, then back again into the physical. This year NEoN will be investigating, encouraging and exploring the movement between these environments.”
