Artist and SMBHmag Director Barry W Hughes is launching a new collaborative project.
The dedicated Instagram account is a kind of sketchbook of images that are regularly collected, acting like a living archive. Due to the visual style being so well-defined, the hashtag #neoptics has been coined for others to imitate the visual style of NEOP and share their own experiences with the subject matter of the project.
The aim is to use the medium and delivery to engage in a wide reaching collaboration, in much the same way NASA use the information gathered from a community of astronomers to keep track of the skies around Earth and build an overall picture.
