Telic is magic through technology. Telic is our relationship with the tools which help us to design the World and to see things in a perspective. Our times are Telic. But we want to see more Neen happen.
NEEN, is a name created from Lexicon Branding after a commission by Miltos Manetas and Yvonne Force from Art Production Fund. Lexicon, (the creators of "Powerbook", "Embassy Suites" and "Pentium"), delivered more than one hundred terms. The word "Neen" was created by a computer program run by Lexicon. It is a palindrome (like Dada) and coincidentally, in old Greek, means "exactly now". Neen was introduced in May 2000 in a performance at Gagosian Gallery in New York. This was the starting point for an international movement which has grown by word of mouth and on the Internet.
