Katharine Norman receives 2012 New Media Writing Prize

Honorary Research Fellow Katharine Norman is recipient of the 2012 New Media Writing Prize, announced by Bournemouth University and if:book UK. Norman received the prize for her work Window, an interactive sound essay in memory of John Cage. 

The work was described as "a beautiful meditation made by a composer with a love of coding and an imagination that naturally expresses itself in digital, multimedia productions. The term ‘poetic’ in this field can be code for impenetrable, but this really is a multimedia poem of depth and substance, inspired by the work and philosophy of John Cage. The viewer/listener/reader looks out of a window, hears ambient sound, evocative text, using a slider which makes it possible and pleasurable to move from day to night, to remix the balance of text to sound."
