The Lumen Prize returned to New York City for Creative Tech Week, a citywide festival that celebrates the creative industries. From May 20 – 21, a selection of Lumen Prize works from the 2016 exhibition were exhibited at the Auditorium on Broadway.
Highlights in the show included:
Fabio Giampietro’s Hyperplanes of Simultaneity reflects on the prominence of technology in the gallery space. Acknowledging that today there is an increasing number of visitors who prefer to take photos and selfies with the work, the artist uses virtual reality to explode the canvas into three dimensions and place the visitor within the painting.
A projected clock by Nathan Selikof visualises real-time audio waves as the hour and minute hand on a clock face and Carla Gannis, a dynamic force in international digital art, has created a year long project that embraces and explores the significance of the selfie phenomenon.
The show was part of the Creative Tech Week conference which ran from May 20-21.
