It's been a heady ten days for Lumen, with the 2017 Awards announced last Wednesday and the first stop of the 2017/2018 Global Tour kicking off tonight at the Brighton Digital Festival. Pictured above is the hugely talented Cecilie Waagner Falkenstrøm of Denmark who won Lumen's very first award for Artificial Intelligence with FRANK, an artwork that wants to talk to you about love and life. The Award was presented in partnership with the British Computer Society which blogged about it this week, dubbing Cecilie's work Frankly Brilliant.

Other talented 2017 Lumen winners will be profiled on this blog over the next few months, along with a number of shortlisted works.  If you have a particular favourite you'd like to know more about, we'd love to hear from you at info@lumenprize.com.

In the meantime, if you want to see a selected of this year's winners and shortlisted works, get yourself to the University of Brighton, 154-155 Edward St, Brighton, BN2 0JG. The Lumen show is  on from 12pm - 5pm on 29 & 30th September, 4-7th October & 11-13th October. FRANK will be there too!
