Italian duo duo wins digital art prize with virtual reality work

The Lumen Prize celebrates the very best art created digitally. As a not-for-profit social enterprise our goal is to focus the world’s attention on this exciting genre through an annual competition, a global tour and associated activities including workshops, seminars and special events. Since the first show in London in January 2013, Lumen has staged nearly 30 shows and events around the world, including New York City, Shanghai, Athens, Amsterdam, Riga, Cardiff, Hong Kong und Leeds. In collaboration with its academic partners, Lumen advances the understanding of digital art at seminars, artist talks, workshops and symposiums.

Much more than a competition, Lumen's team works hard to provide a range of opportunities to past and present winners and shortlisted artists. These have included for example sales, commissions, solo shows as well as opportunities to appear at seminars and retrospectives. Artists from all over the world have submitted their digital artworks for this year’s Lumen Prize, of which 28 have been shortlisted for the top prizes worth $11k. They also will be heading on the 2016/17 Global Tour which is set to kick off in London on September 29th at Hackney House.

This year’s winners have been announced on September 29th at Hackney House, London. The first prize goes to the innovative VR work 'Hyperplanes of Simultaneity' by Fabio Giampietro and Alessio De Vecchi. In their work, the two artists bring tumbling down the barriers between art and tech. Fusing the tradition of painting - with a huge augmented reality painting and a pioneering take on photo documentary using Google Street view - and the most innovative technologies of virtual reality, 'Hyperplanes of Simultaneity' annihilates the contemplative distance between the voyeur and the work of art. Removing the painting from the confines of its frame, the painting on canvas is exploded into three dimensions allowing the spectator to step inside and voyage across the mind of the artist.
