-The guardian culture blog

The Lumen Prize Exhibition celebrates the very best art created digitally by artists globally. Its goal is to focus the world’s attention on this exciting genre through an annual competition and global tour of works selected by an international panel of judges.

For Creative Tech Week, The Lumen Prize has curated a collection of award winning pieces that blur the lines of art, interaction, music and technology.

The exhibition will show works by 2015 Lumen Prize Winners at St Francis College from April 30-May 5, 10 am-6 pm

This year’s prize-winning collection to be featured includes the following and more:

MÉTAMORPHY -  Scenocosme

 2015 Lumen Silver Winner.

A deeply immersive sensory exploration of sound and light.

A semi-transparent veil has an elasticity which, when stretched and played with by the participant, offers sensory interactions that explore depths of various universes, through organic, liquid or incandescent substances.

The interactions of the participants with the veil alter the matter of the universes and generate three dimensional soundscapes.

A NEW JERUSALEM –Michael Takeo Magruder

2014 silver winner.

An immersive virtual reality installation that seeks to embody the spirit of this prophesised city.

ELECTRIC SHEEP- Scott Draves

2015 Founder’s Prize Winner

First created in 1999 by Scott Draves, the Electric Sheep is a form of artificial life, which is to say it is software that recreates the biological phenomena of evolution and reproduction though mathematics. The system is made up of man and machine, a cyborg mind with 450,000 participant computers and people all over the Internet.

MAN  A –Gibson/Martelli

2014 Prize Winner

An interactive downloadable app and augmented reality experience that sees life and movement burst from a flat surface of distorted patterns.  Gibson/Martelli see the Man A project as a conceptual laboratory and the outcomes of a number of their experiments have been exhibited in a variety of forms including site-specific installation, large scale wall and window prints, and virtual reality.

 WORLD OF WATER - Anne Morgan Spalter

Hypnotic digital animation based on the footage the artist shot while at Volcano Falls, Illinois. World of Water integrates art and technology in a spell-binding way that transforms holiday photographs into kaleidoscopic imagery.

IN FLOW- Ronan Devlin

In Flow is about material and psychological changes in state. Originally staged in an expansive former retail park, the immersive and playful work is comprised of light responsive prints, a Moiret- generating sculpture and an audience-responsive audio-visual installation.

Guided Exhibit Tours by Lumen Prize Curators + Networking

This year’s prize-winning collection to be featured includes the following and more:

PORTÉE-   Lab 212 Collective

 2015 Welsh National Opera Performance Prize

The hugely impressive centre piece of the Lumen Prize exhibition is a multi-sensory project at the crossing of light, architecture and music that poses the question: what if architecture could be expressed through music?

Luminous wires stretching down from towering concrete pillars, mysteriously linked to a solitary grand piano can be played like a giant harp creating an immersive layered soundscape as audience members interact with the piece.
