Tomorrow I will arrive in the beautiful city of Linz for the Ars Electronica Prix, one of the most important awards for creativity and pioneering spirit in the field of digital media. Prizes are awarded in the following categories:
- Computer Animation / Film / VFX
- Interactive Art

- Hybrid Art
- Digital Communities
- u19 – CREATE YOUR WORLD
- [the next idea] voestalpine Art and Technology Grant
I am very excited to be a jury member for the Digital Communities category, which focuses on the social and artistic impact of the Internet technology. I have already taken a first look at the projects in this category and I am fascinated by the level of diversity and creativity displayed by people from all over the world during this time of intense social and political changes.
We will be sharing details on Prix Ars Electronica 2012 winners, winning projects and jury considerations soon.
