Reason for Award

The virtually arts-and-crafts feel of the digital creatures conceived by the artist frees this work of the cliched “futurism” found in so many digital images today.In this “clockwork” world, the chronological divergence between the traditional and the contemporary, the future, even prehistory,is all compressed into one dimension, birthing a separate “time and space” unlike any other we have seen.Is this not perhaps the true potential of digital expression?
