Future Artefacts 2015

  • Posted 32 months Ago

Future Artefacts will hold it’s inaugural event this October in East London, bringing together a multitude of the world’s most progressive art publishers, record labels, fashion brands and tech companies, with the focus to celebrate their products as media artefacts of the future. The three-day fair will also host drop-in art and music workshops, talks in conjunction with their media partner Dazed, food by Sub Cult and a series club nights held in various venues around East London.

Founders Ben Freeman and Deano Jo, owners of Ditto Press and Real Gold respectively, gave the below statement about the event via press release:

"We established Future Artefacts to champion the producers of the most beautiful physical manifestations of media today. We’d like to encourage a future where anything that can be digital will be and where the only things that are produced are those that unite visionary content with the world’s best craftsmanship and production techniques. We felt that there was a gap to showcase these producers collectively in London and so we hope that Future Artefacts will provide this opportunity for increased access to, and discussion around, the artefacts of the future."

Items will range from exclusive vinyl records, limited edition art and photobooks, 3D printed musical totems, custom Future Artefacts synthesisers and Bjork’s incredible "Stonemilker" music video on Oculus Rift. Exhibitors include Aesop, AnOther, Big Dada, Claire de Rouen, Diagonal, Ditto Press, Ninja Tune, Technology Will Save Us, Trolley Books and many more.
