Nomination for BNG WorkSpace Project Prize 2010

Close Encounter of the First Kind SketchI got nom­i­nat­ed for the BNG Work­Space Project Prize 2010, orga­nized by Filmhuis Den Haag / ZAAL5, with a project pro­pos­al for an inter­ac­tive light instal­la­tion named ‘A Close Encounter of The First Kind’ (for which i’m still seek­ing funding).

WORKSPACE is the annu­al project com­pe­ti­tion through which ZAAL5 seeks out tal­ent­ed film­mak­ers and artists work­ing with film, new (inter­ac­tive) media, video instal­la­tions, per­for­mance and visu­als. ZAAL5 is the in-house project space for media arts at Filmhuis Den Haag. This mul­ti­func­tion­al room is ded­i­cat­ed to pro­grammes and projects using mov­ing images that are not dis­played in reg­u­lar film halls.

I was one of the 5 select­ed artists (out of 45 appli­cants) that had to pitch his or her project pro­pos­al on the 25th of april 2010, in front of a pro­fes­sion­al jury, to win one of the two avail­able prizes of € 9000,- for the real­iza­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion of the project.
