Aspen’s search for the best new talent in the emerging field of online art continues and we have received proposals from eight students studying at some of the U.K.’s most prestigious arts colleges. These proposals can be viewed on the Shortlist page, with images and videos presented with a rationalisation from each student providing context and explaining how the piece will work.
Given the strength of the submissions, our judging panel – made up of members of the Aspen executive committee as well as external arts experts – will surely have a hard time choosing a winner to receive the £4,000 commission. Their decision will be announced on May 8, 2014 following a private award event held at Aspen’s London Office on Fenchurch Street.
We Managed to get some time in with some of the students to talk to them about their art and the obstacles that they have to overcome in order to invest time in it. We also asked them to explain what winning the Aspen Award for Online Art might mean to them. See what they said in our video above.
