…and I did not win an award. But I am still very happy to be included in the shortlist, among such amazing artists and artworks. I would like to give a shout out to the winner of the Interactive Award, Laser Light Synths by Seb Lee-Delisle (Brighton, UK). I’ve been a fan of Seb’s work for a long time, both his interactive installations and his educational and community efforts, including the Creative Coding Podcast, which he co-hosts with Iain Lobb.
Here’s some more info about the grand prize winner and awards ceremony:
On September 29th at Hackney House, London, $11,000 was presented in prize money to some of the world’s most pioneering digital artists. The winner, chosen by our eminent panel of judges was Hyperplanes of Simultaneity by Fabio Giampietro and Alessio De Vecchi. This innovative VR work, alongside a year-long augmented reality portrait, 50 algorithmically ‘grown’ plants and a pioneering take on photo documentary using Google Street view captured the judges attention.

Because my piece, Audiograph, was shortlisted, it will be included in many of the upcoming exhibits. It took just over a month for my shipment to get from the US to the UK and clear customs! The first exhibit the piece will be included in is on November 17th, 2016 at Canary Wharf in London. It is an invite-only event; please email [email protected] for more information. Following that will be a public exhibit from November 23rd – 28th at Caerphilly Castle, Wales. The organizers are planning on getting a projector strong enough to project my piece on the side of the castle! So if you’re in the UK in November, you’ve got a few opportunities to experience this piece in person.
