Taking the prize home.

I’m very happy and honored to have won Gold at the Visuelt Awards this year! This (top) prize is for my Master’s project Stardust in the interaction design (student work) category.

I attended the ceremony which was held on October 17th at Sentrum Scene in Oslo. It was a meeting point for people in the design and advertising industry in Norway (and as I found out that evening, the awards are the biggest in the North/Northern Europe regarding design and advertising). I must say I have never been to the Visuelt ceremony before, so I was exited and overwhelmed in equal measure. The Awards were hosted by Jon Almaas (who hosts a TV night show here called Nytt på Nytt) and included the intense, colorful musical performance of Nils Bech.

Here are the jury’s comments:

“Dette er nettopp det man skal bruke studietiden til; eksperimentere, utforske og leke med mulighetene. Her våger studenten å gå langt utover sitt eget fagområde. Bruk av sensorikk, projeksjon og bevegelse gjør dette til en spennende installasjon med et poetisk tilsnitt. Her er det rom for å utforske videre. Godt og omfattende dokumentasjonsarbeid.”

And video:

You can see some pics of the awards and the seminar here, and a mention of the prize in my former college’s website (Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo) here.

My work can be seen on the Visuelt winner’s website, and you can explore the interaction design category here.

Thank you to Grafill, Visuelt and the jury members!

A big shout-out to the openframeworks community for sharing and allowing us students to learn and join the front lines.

Special thanks to Pete, Joel, Lise, Maz, Eirik and my wonderful classmates.
