The jury met, they deliberated, and made their decision. Actually, they had a lot of trouble making their decision so… it’s a tie!
Congratulations I Am Jen and Tobi-x! You’ll each receive a $50 prize. The jury liked the effort and polish put into I Am Jen’s video and the effort and total absurdity of Tobi-x’s.
Bennett Williamson’s Screenshots from The Computer Chronicles (resized and cropped) is a new body of work created specifically for the Add-Art Firefox plugin. The images are from still frames of The Computer Chronicles, a weekly public television show running from 1983-2002 produced by the College of San Mateo’s KCSM-TV. Since its cancellation, nearly all the episodes have been digitized and made available for free download from the Internet Archive.

Tonight, artists eteam (Hajoe Moderegger and Franziska Lamprecht), Steve Lambert, Evan Roth and Ben Engebreth, and Rafael Rozendaal, who received support in the 2008 cycle, present their finished projects as well as other select projects.
