| The Prix Ars Electronica winners: a barometer of trends in media art
Brimming with pictures and texts by artists and members of the jury, this book documents the outstanding works from the Prix Ars Electronica 2011. The DVD presents a selection of prizewinning submissions dealing with current trends. Since its inception in 1987, the Prix Ars Electronica, the world’s most highly remunerated digital arts award, has been an annual barometer of trends in digital creativity, and continues to be a trailblazer in discovering innovative art. Thirty-five international experts judge thousands of submissions in the categories Computer Animation / Film / VFX, Digital Music & Sound Art, Interactive Art, Hybrid Art, Digital Communities, [the next idea], the voestalpine Art and Technology Grant, and the youth competition, u19—freestyle computing.
