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.”
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.
