A very special film experience showcases the prizewinning works in the Prix Ars Electronica’s Computer Animation / Visual Effects category all the way back to 1987.

The films singled out for recognition with the Golden Nica will be presented on an innovative media platform designed by Ars Electronica Futurelab engineers. They’re all here: from John Lasseter’s “Luxo jr.,” a cute little story about a tiny lamp and its ball, to Tomek Baginski’s “Fallen Art,” the 2005 prizewinner. In short, this is a concise overview of developments in the field of computer animation / visualization over the last 18 years.

Users can navigate among the individual projects by making gentle hand motions over the presentation table, which makes input devices like a keyboard, mouse or touchscreen superfluous. Sensors register the user’s motions and open up the selected content.
