digital sparks 2001

The digital sparks higher education competition took place for the first time in 2001.
In preparation for the first competition, lecturers from 60 different › higher education establishments in Germany and Switzerland were contacted and asked to select the three best student projects from their faculty for the years 1999 - 2001 and to submit these online to the netzspannung.org Internet platform with the students involved. A total of 52 › projects were submitted. A › preliminary panel of judges drawn from the fields of media art, media design and IT nominated 23 projects. The › final panel of judges awarded prizes to three projects. Prize winners were given a › production grant to develop their work at the MARS-Exploratory Media Lab.

Presentation of the projects

The prizes were awarded to the winners at the › cast01 , "Living in Mixed Realities", which took place in late September 2001 in Birlinghoven Castle, Sankt Augustin, and the winners were able to present their work there.
