The 2018 Lumen Prize Longlist Features Two CYFEST Projects

The Lumen Prize’s 7th Call for Entries attracted entries from artists from 48 countries globally. The International Selectors Committee considered nearly 700 submitted artworks, by category, and picked this year’s longlist of 60 works, published here.

CYLAND MediaArtLab is pleased to see two of the recent CYFEST projects — William Latham’s Mutator VR and Kseniia Galkina’s Holo Sapiens — entering the longlist in their respective categories.
