Apologies for any cross-postings

Dear All,

the opening night of the eighth Piemonte Share Festival saw the 
announcement of the winner of the Share Prize 2012, along with special 
mentions of other commendable works. The aim of the Share Prize is to 
discover, promote and support the digital arts. This year the prize 
attracted entries from 270 artists located in 22 different countries.
The entries were short-listed by an international jury consisting of 
Mirjam Struppek, Bruce Sterling, Carlo Ratti and Simona Lodi. The six 
finalists were Jonathan Baldwin, Julian Koschowitz, Mariano Leotta, Mark 
Shepard, Stanza, and VR/Urban.

The jury, represented by Mirjam Struppek, gave the following motivations 
for its decision:

“The short-list selected by the Jury reflects current artistic practice, 
revealing an image of our city that seems to be more and more a system 
ruled by data, information exchange or messages produced by us or our 
behaviour.

Considering criteria such as the formal completeness of the art work, 
the ability to communicate its message, the bridging of physical and 
digital realities, the involvement of citizens as creators and the theme 
Open Your City, the Jury decided to award the Share Prize to the British 
artist Stanza. His work Capacities: Life In The Emergent City was found 
to have effectively represented, both aesthetically and, above all, 
technically, city life in real time, monitoring boroughs of London to 
show the complexity of an urban location in real time as a system in 
perpetual mutation.”

Sentient City by Mark Shepard received an Honorary Mention as it 
poignantly questions such fashionable concepts as a "Smart City" based 
on the internet of things and ubiquitous computing. Offering us an 
artistic survival kit against an over-coded environment, he prepares us 
for life in a dystopian sentient city.

Screen Program Dancing Hands
For the video screening Dancing Hands, a special mention went to Antoine 
Schmitt for his City Lights Orchestra, considered the most 
participatory, bottom-up project at Share Festival 2012. The Share 
Festival is calling on everyone in Turin to take part in the 
collaborative crowd- sourcing initiative City Light Orchestra to Open 
Your City on 10th November at 9 pm.

The artist Antoine Schmitt needs your helping hands to turn your own 
window into a blinking pixel of a huge collaborative urban screen. Set 
up your computer for the pulsing light at the website below, extend the 
time when its display goes to sleep, turn your screen-saver off and put 
the browser to full screen, then, connect to 
www.citylightsorchestra.net, put the computer near a window, switch off 
the lights and go out and enjoy! Out on the street, visit the same web 
page on your smart phone and pulse in rhythm with the symphony.
