Golden Nica “u19 – freestyle computing” 2008
At this year's Ars Electronica Center exhibition, the spotlight will be on u19 - freestyle computing. The inherently broad spectrum of u19 and the multifaceted entries submitted to it make it the Prix Ars Electronica’s most highly diversified category year after year. Now, for the first time, the prizewinners will be showcased exclusively throughout the entire Museum of the Future.
u19 - freestyle computing involves up-and-coming young artists taking every conceivable approach to doing creative work with the help of digital technology. Anything goes here; perennial favorites are animated films, videos, image processing, website design, robotics experiments, applications, network software and games.
