Equally, the committee unanimously decided to concede a second prize to Cesar Escudero Andaluz for his project Inter-Flight with the commitment of Eurecat, NewArtFoundation and the invaluable collaboration of Hangar, to find the necessary means to produce the work.
The ATA Grant team wishes to thank all the participants for the enthusiasm and professionalism demonstrated in the process. Due to this the
Directorship of Eurcat and the NewArtFoundation board have declared their intention to convene a second edition. The synergies established between artists, technologists and scientists have enriched on a personal level all those who took part as well as the institutions involved.
We are confident that on the 14th of July we will be able to announce a second edition of the ATA Grant.
