This Weekend, get yourself down to East London’s Shoreditch Studios, where FUTURE ARTEFACTS have just kicked off their three-day fair, bringing together a selection of progressive music, arts publishing, fashion and tech companies to celebrate the media artefacts of the future.
“We established FUTURE ARTEFACTS to champion the producers of the most beautiful physical manifestations of media today,” explain co-founders Ben Freeman and Deano Jo. “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 at the fair range from 3D printed musical totems, fabric made from sonic algorithms, Bjork’s Stonemilk video on Oculus Rift, rare zines, limited edition art and photobooks, exclusive vinyl pressings, Future Artefacts synthesizers and much more.
Confirmed exhibitors for 2015 are Aesop, AMC Books, AnOther, Astral Black, Beatwoven, Baron Magazine, Bemojake, Big Dada, Breakdown Press, Butterz, Claire de Rouen, Diagonal, Ditto Press, Ecstatic Peace Library, Eros, Four Corners, GOST Books, Here Press & Loose Joints, Huntleys & Palmers, In Other Words, Knives, Kodoji, Landfill Editions, LuckyMe, Ninja Tune, One Little Indian, PAN, REGA, Reify, Ridinghouse, Self Publish Be Happy Editions, Sorika, Stolen Recordings, Studio Operative, Super/Collider, Technology Will Save Us and Trolley Books.
