Dr. Hetty Blades approached Neon's Adrienne Hart in 2016 after being awarded a three-month residency at the Digital Catapult in London. Hetty is running a research project that looks at the circulation of dance online, in relation to questions of value, ownership, and authorship. Hetty became particularly interested in Neon's Empathy behind the scenes film series, and how the company negotiate value, ownership, and authorship in the online space.
Adrienne will be meeting with Hetty in London on the 15th June and 12th July in order to support her project. Findings are expected to be published later in the year.
