transmediale.01  - international media art festival berlin
DIY [ do it yourself ! ]
4 - 11 February 2001


The transmediale.01 will award three prizes - each worth DM 10.000 -
in the categories: Interactive, Video and Artistic Software.

In the INTERACTIVE section, interactive installations were invited together
with virtual environments, CD-ROMs, DVDs, Internet and performance projects
etc. in which visitors or users are not simply "interpassive" but are
encouraged to respond and act in a creative manner.

The VIDEO section covers linear, time-based presentations searching for new
aesthetic forms of expression. These can be on DVD, various video formats
or film (up to 35 mm).

The as yet barely defined field of ARTISTIC SOFTWARE incorporates projects
in which self-written algorithmic computer software (stand alone programmes
or script-based applications) is not merely a functional tool, but is
itself an artistic creation and a form of aesthetic expression.

Jury:

Interactive
Alex Adriaansens (NL)
Soeke Dinkla (D)
Michael Saup (D)

Video
Catrin Backhaus (D)
Angela Melitopoulos (D)
Gereon Schmitz (D)

Software
Florian Cramer (D)
Ulrike Gabriel (D)
John F. Simon (US)


The juries have nominated a shortlist of 6 projects in each category. These
projects will be presented by the artists in a programme on the afternoon
of Saturday 10 February 2001. The winners will be announced during the
prize ceremony on the same day, starting at 20.30 hrs.
