  • I encountered Lumen after being recommended by Animate Projects to jury the 2014 Lumen Prize. What an absolute revelation for me to discover the wide, varied, and thoroughly exciting world of creation in this digital space. I'm eager for the next round of benchmark pioneering projects from Lumen, that will surely astound and shake me!

  • "Technology and art are, and have always been, in a symbiotic relationship. For too long this relationship has been shunned or ignored in the art world. The Lumen Prize celebrates  the union of Technology and Art with a wonderful diversity of work."
