STARTS starts up for another year

STARTS starts up for another year “Spaxels”, Ars Electronica

Ars Electronica and Waag Society have come together again to invite artists to submit their latest and greatest digital artworks to the STARTS (Science, Technology, Arts) price.

As ever, there are two categories. The prize for innovative collaboration honours any pairing up of industry/tech and artists which had led to something truly creative. The prize for artistic collaboration is given out for a work which influences or changes the perception of digital technology. Two winners and ten honourable mentions are selected for each prize.

Ars has already commented on some of the submissions, ranging from a 3D-printed steel bridge for Amsterdam, to a DIY kit to breed bacteria for, er, vaginal flora to fashion design that blends nature and technology”. So there you go.

Winners also receive €20k, the opportunity to show their work across a globally diverse network of AEC partners, and - given that this is a pretty decent, well-established award - some additional kudos.

Applications can be made here until 01/03/19. The initiative is part-funded by those nice folks at the European Union.
