Jury’s decision in II Open Call for EX Experimental New Media Art Prize

EX asociación de arte electrónico y EXperimental




the Jury for the II Open Call for EX Experimental New Media Art Prize announce their verdict as follows:


The Jury, consisting of Nilo Casares, Jaime Lavagne and Arturo Moya Villén, in order to pass judgement on the II EX Experimental New Media Art Prize, held a meeting at five p.m. on the 19th of January 2016 and, after a long deliberation, decided to




the First EX Experimental New Media Art Prize, worth a thousand euros, to the piece BNC B by Martin Reiche (Germany), both for its artistic quality and for an extraordinary synaesthesia that offers the video-work’s visual experience as a journey into the inner depths and wiring on which every digital work depends –to the extent that they would not exist without such wiring– and for displaying a digital transparency that only works within this art dare to showcase, allowing us to see what they are made of, yet not how they have been implemented.


The Second EX Prize allocates one of the Just Residence artist-in-residence programs, organized by JustMAD, to the piece Blowjob (400 milisegundos) by José Sánchez (Spain) for developing an interplay that, albeit plainly presented, maintains its complexity, transforming the ordinary action of blowing into a surreal experience in which our gaze becomes our lips. With this second piece, in the II Edition of these Awards we want to emphasise deceit and illusion as being core elements in contemporary art, suggesting how emerging technologies can aid us through different paths to new magical places.



This Award seeks to highlight individual pieces as much as it strives to scrutinise digital art’s current state, never neglecting expository coherence in doing so. Thus, with the aim of keeping in harmony all selected works, we would now like to select the following works to be shown at Just Tech 16 (New Media’s section of JustMAD7):


The Mailman’s Bag by PolakVanBekkkum (Netherlands), which we consider to be a humorous intersection of sound art, smartphone-induced GPS frenzy, and a great glitch atmosphere that surrounds us, from this reality infuriated by the presence of an error which we can’t avoid because all around us there is only noise.


Jane by Ian Filtman (England), because it dives into an emotional chaos “à la carte”, which invades us with confusion using games as rogue and mischievous as those employed by Joyce in his play ‘Exiles’, this time with a theatrical execution, and a transparent panoply which does not inherently allow a clear following of love’s (and heartbreak’s) happenstances.


Environment Dress by María Castellanos and Alberto Valverde (Spain), for its development in the ways to connect things to individuals and their clothing, following an impending course of internet of things, a course that threatens to link everyone and everything to the Intervention and Control Technologies into which the ICTs that we all cherish have evolved.
