This weekend, during an awards gala held at the Bristol Old Vic, we were very honored to receive an award presented by Bristol’s mayor, George Ferguson, on behalf of the UK Royal Television Society for “Best Digital Innovation of 2012”! This award recognises outstanding innovations in digital content across any platform or combination of platforms, breaking new ground in digital media. During the presentation, George Ferguson, just like nearly everybody else, couldn’t pronounce “spectroscopy,” proving yet again how awkward a name ‘danceroom Spectroscopy’ is for a project.
The Royal Television Society judges chose Hidden Fields for its originality, creative use of media, and unique fusion of art and science, saying “they’d never seen anything like it before”. Project leader Dr. David Glowacki, choreographer Laura Kriefman, and programmer Phill Tew were on hand to collect the award. During the acceptance speech, Glowacki thanked several contributors who where not present, and announced that “Hidden Fields is the world’s first ever dance show driven by algorithms from quantum dynamics.” Well done to everyone involved. Giddyup!
