Coder and director Evan Boehm, who is a graduate of our MA in Design: Critical Practice (and whose award-winning digital work has been featured on the blog in the past) is one of the nominees for Tate Britain’s IK Prize. Votes from the public will have a say in choosing the final winner, so go ahead and have a look at the shortlisted entries and then, of course, vote for Evan!
The purpose of the prize is to celebrate creative talent in the digital industry; it will be awarded to an innovative project that adds to people’s enjoyment of Tate Britain’s art collection. Evan’s submission is called “Through The Eyes of an 8-Year Old’ ; as it is obvious from its title, it is a proposal for an animated, interactive web experience that explores the museum through the eyes and imagination of a child. Voting closes at midnight on January 24th, and the winning entry will be announced on 6 February, and subsequently turned into reality for display at Tate Britain, with a budget of £60,000.
