WOOT WOOOT!!!! We are excited to share that we won the Grand Prize in NewImages Festival in Paris with Traversing the Mist!

 

JURY REPORT: “We would like to recognize a work that rendered us speechless and knowingly connected, after we took off the headsets. This groundbreaking communal, immersive experience offered us a cohesive and viscerally embodied voyeuristic journey that spanned the full spectrum of fear, desire, discovery, corporality, community, aging, and death. And onto a timeless state of cosmic being, as we joyously join the stars as a key to a bathhouse locker. The Grand Jury Prize goes to Traversing the Mist.” – Shari Frilot (Jury of the 7th NewImages Festival)
