Nominated for Prix Ars Electronica 2010

Roth Mobot has been nominated for this year’s Prix Ars Electronica award in the category "Digital Communities."

The Digital Communities category focuses on political, social and cultural projects, initiatives, groups and scenes from all over the world that display commitment to smart, successful ways of deploying digital technologies to solve social problems.

Particular emphasis is placed on a project’s degree of community innovation, its sustainability and its use of technology in a way that makes good sense and is attuned to the needs of the people meant to benefit from it.

Hopefully, Roth Mobot's commitment to the demystification of technology, the creative enablement of future experimental electronics artists, the creative recycling of e-waste, and  the ongoing nurturing of the Midwest Acquired Technology Arts community will set us apart. This would be an awesome award we could all be proud of, as we all had a hand in it. It is an honor to even be nominated. Thank you.
