Short: National Digital Art Awards, IMA


Suzanne Treister, No other symptoms: Time travelling with Rosalind Brodsky, interactive CD-ROM Suzanne Treister, No other symptoms: Time travelling with Rosalind Brodsky, interactive CD-ROM
Brisbane’s Institute of Modern Art received a deluge of entries for its National Digital Art Awards. Judges Justine Cooper (1998 1st prize winner), Amanda McDonald Crowley (director, ANAT) and David Broker (deputy director, Institute of Modern Art) chose 14 finalists and eventually narrowed it down to the winners who were announced by Wayne Goss on October 14. Martine Corompt and Philip Samartzis won 1st prize for their interactive sound sculpture Dodg’em, “an inventive installation that configures the physical space of the gallery as a portal to a richly designed sonic world” (Darren Tofts, RealTime 33). Melinda Rackham’s Carrier (www.subtle.net/carrier), “an experimental website investigating viral symbiosis in the virtual and biological domains” (Melinda Rackham, Working the Screen, RealTime 30), came in 2nd and 3rd place went to Suzanne Treister’s interactive CD-ROM No other symptoms: Time travelling with Rosalind Brodsky, where Rosalind makes her fortune designing and manufacturing vibrators which look and talk like famous people throughout history. The Tertiary prize went to Amor Veneris A, an installation by Mari Velonaki where “a woman’s face is viewed through a magnifying glass...the spectator can activate her by blowing against her face using the breath switch” (Mari Velonaki, Working the Screen) and All Hallows School student Van Le won the Secondary prize with digitally enhanced photographs in Dream Focus Envision.
