Spectre Shortlisted For Aesthetica Art Prize
We are delighted to announce that Spectre has been shortlisted for the 2020 Aesthetica Art Prize. Both myself and Bill Posters will join the remaining 16 artists for the Aesthetica Art Prize exhibition at York Contemporary opening 12th March 2020.
It is a huge honor for us to be selected from the over 4,000 applications for this year’s prize. We especially thankful to the jury for selecting Spectre in the aftermath of the recent UK elections, which saw computational propaganda and targeted misinformation at levels not seen thus far in Europe.
As ever profound thanks go out to our funders, partners and supporters including Arts Council England, Sheffield Doc/Fest, British Council, MUTEK, Site Gallery, Cambridge Psychometrics Centre, and CannyAI. We would also like to extend special thanks to our dev. team, designers and consultants including Craig Oldham (UK), Gavin Grindon (UK), Lucy Francis (UK), Dr. Areeb Alowisheq (SAU), Dr. David Stillwell (UK) (Deputy Director, Psychometrics Centre), Vesselin Popov (BGR) (Lead Psychometrician), Dr Aiden Loe (KOR) (Data scientist / Psychometrician), and UX Gurus Pete Cadney (UK) and Aya Karpinska (US).
