Tim Pritlove's picture

Project Blinkenlights has won the People's Choice Award of the Nuit Blanche 2008 in Toronto. As the name implies, the price was awarded by the people who voted for their favorite project on the sponsor's project page instead of a jury.

The Blinkenlights is very happy about this award as it proves we have been able to reach out to the public and let them enjoy our installation in a very unique way. A big thank you to everybody who voted for us.

Thank you, Toronto

Blinkenlights Stereoscope is over now. Thank you Toronto for giving us the opportunity to present our work here. It has been a great experience and we think Toronto is a town that is more than worth the effort. We have had a good time here and the response of the people has been great.

We are now busy dismantling the installation which will done end of the week. We'll head home then and we appreciate the good time we had.

We have put the telephone numbers for the Stereoscope Games in a vCard 3.0 file for easy importing into your phone. Might come in handy.
