The Arts Council of Northern Ireland has announced funding of £40,000 to support five individual artists from Northern Ireland in the creation of a number of exciting, high-quality arts projects using innovative digital technologies. The five artists include, Csilla Toldy, Michael McEvoy, Michael Speers, Peter O’Doherty and Rueben Brown.
The funding is part of the Arts Council’s Individual Artists Digital Evolution Awards, a programme supported by The National Lottery, which offered artists across all art forms the opportunity to apply for grants of up to £10,000 each.
The Individual Artists Digital Evolution Awards aims to support those artists who are making digital art for the first time, or are working with digital or immersive technology in a novel or innovative way.
With his award Reuben will now develop the following project:
Project title: Interactive, Ephemeral, (Hyper)Real Installation
Rueben Brown, based in QSS will develop a project entitled, Interactive, Ephemeral, (Hyper) Real Installation, an ambitious large-scale interactive installation combining sculpture, with 3D-CG (computer-generated) animation, ephemeral architecture, lighting and sound engineering, robotics and virtual reality game design.
Congratulations Reuben, we can’t wait to see what you create.
