Award Reason

FADE into WHITE #3, structured around a unique time axis, reminds the viewer about the process of thought. The artist's explicit intentions are decidedly felt through the original expression of time, austere colors, and visual composition. In the world of computer graphics, where technical ability is the single focus of evaluation, this work is unquestionably unique and one-step removed from its antecedents. To procure a place for computer graphics as a legitimate artistic medium, we need to place a much higher value on works like this one.
