RULES OF ENGAGEMENT 03
I’m thrilled to share the news that one of my iPhone/iPad collages has reached the short list in this year’s Lumen Prize for digital arts.
The Lumen Prize “is an international award that celebrates the very best fine art created digitally.” The aim of its founders is “to focus the world’s attention on this exciting, emerging genre of fine art through a curated competition that will find the very best examples of digitally-created art and then take this work on a global tour…It is our belief that the power of art can promote both change and social progress. In addition to accepting entries from anywhere in the world, we will also seek out artists in low income and conflict-affected countries and communities. To assist in this outreach, we are working with Peace Direct, a registered charity, which has links to local arts and cultural groups in many of these areas.”
The Lumen Prize Exhibition – comprising the Lumen Prize winners, the Exhibition 50 and the People’s Choice winner, will start travelling the world in January 2013 and the following dates are already confirmed:
January 21-28: London, Gallery 27, Cork Street
February, 2013: Latvia, Robert’s Books
February 2013: Shanghai, FQ Projects
March 2013: Hong Kong, Plum Blossoms Art Gallery
A jury panel of artists, academics and critics selected the shortlist of 20, and the Prize winner, runner-up, and finalist will be announced on October 19, 2012 at Cardiff City Hall, Wales.

Each tiny stitch, by hand
Laid in a drawer
Wrapped in layers of tissue
Caught on an old cobweb
Spun across the edge of the pond
At the bottom of my garden
