En años anteriores se han premiado proyectos artísticos realizados con robots, avatares electrónicos, algoritmos caóticos, knowbots, autómatas celulares, virus informáticos, ecologías virtuales que evolucionan con la interacción del participante, y trabajos que profundizan en aspectos sociales de la Vida Artificial.

Golden Nicas and Honorable Mentions_Hybrid Art


SymbioticA (Golden Nicas) and Andy Gracie (Honorable Mention), our guests in Días de Bioarte 2006 have been awarded in Prix Ars Electronica 2007 in the category Hybrid Art.

Hybrid Art focuses on hybrid and transdisciplinary projects. The essential element is the blending and interweaving of different media and genres into new forms of artistic expression. For many artists, it‚s become a matter of course to transgress boundaries: they conduct research, pursue an active commitment to social and political causes, or engage with pop culture, and it‚s now time to formally acknowledge this development. Hybrid Art is designed to expand the scope of the Prix Ars Electronica categories of long standing and thus to create latitude for new and unexpected forms of creativity.

Our best wishes and congratulations to both of them!!
