Uhlig Digital Art Award Winners:
Cedric Kiefer & Daniel Franke
for their work entitled "unnamed soundsculpture"
"This project was built upon the consideration of creating a moving
sculpture from the recorded motion data of a real person. For this
project we asked a dancer to visualize a musical piece (Kreukeltape
by Machinenfabriek) as closely as possible by movements of her body.
She was recorded by three depth cameras in which the intersection
of the images was later put together to a three-dimensional volume."
— Cedric Kiefer
Take a look behind the scenes at the making of "unnamed soundsculpture"
For all the attention given to language, it is obvious that some of the most powerful,
thought-provoking and timeless works of expression are captured in the form of images and sound alone.
Recognizing the convergence of all forms of expression through advanced technology, the Uhlig Digital Art Awards were created to honor exceptional talent and creativity in digital art and video, and to support deserving
artists by bringing their work to a wider online audience.
Monthly winners receive an honorarium of $1,000, an engraved crystal trophy, and are featured in this online gallery.
If you are a digital artist or videographer, and are interested in being considered for this award, please submit a link to your original work by following the instructions at our submissions page.
