Lumen Still Image Award, 2016

In this post on Medium, the Lumen Prize describes some of the conceptual and political background to my work, Fifty Sisters. The work's title references the original "Seven Sisters" big oil cartels, more recently known as the "Supermajors". The seven sisters were a collection of seven global oil giants that dominated oil production from the 1940s to 1970s. It's poignant to remember that the emissions released by oil burnt back then is still impacting our climate today, and will continue to do so beyond my lifetime.

The work was awarded the Lumen Prize for digital art, in the still image category in 2016. Thanks to Lumen Art for featuring my work again!

A work from the Morphogenesis Series is now in Sydney's new Capella Hotel. Morphogenesis #10 was commissioned as part of the hotel's art collection, curated by The Artling. For this work the 1.3m x 1.3m print size required re-rendering using an improved lighting model over the original version of the work.
