The Golden Nica is replica of the Greek Nike of Samothrace. It is a handmade wooden statuette, plated with gold, so each trophy is unique: approximately 35 cm high, with a wingspan of about 20 cm, all on a pedestal. “Prix Ars Electronica” is a phrase composed of French, Latin and Spanish words, loosely translated as “Electronic Arts Prize.”
F.A.T NIKA v 1.0 is a freestyle replica of Ars Electronica’s Golden Nica: “one of the most important awards for creativity and pioneering spirit in the field of digital media.” The replica is a 3d modelled object statuette copied from a wikipedia photograph, a la old school.
The prestigious award now can be easily reproduced infinite times -digitally or physically- and use it to recognize any creative expression you dig (including your own!), while showing blatant disregard to the scarcity promoted by the art market and the artificial sanctity of juries, curators and gatekeepers.

This morning, a minor epidemic broke out across social networking sites: people were liking, reposting and retweeting an image showing that today was the date that Doc and Marty traveled into the future in the first Back to the Future movie.
Unfortunately this was a doctored image, a complete hoax. If you need to double check on the real time and date the DeLorean travels into the future, see http://areweinthefutureyet.com/
