Dekmantel 2017

Tomorrow’s Artefacts

Announcement film

For Dekmantel 2017 we created a virtual world in which various artifacts are captured going through a process of digitisation. The film explores various objects of antiquity as their outer surfaces begin to recede, giving way to scan lines and other analytical processes. The artifacts are being archived, perhaps protected for future generations. As this process is taking place the film goes on to depict the exterior hardware in which the digitisation process is taking place.

Throughout the teaser film streams of code occasionally interject. Within them were hidden clues about the yet to be released festival line up.
