Prize Awarded to Glasses that Enable Paralysed Artists to Draw

Cool story from Art Daily.

LONDON.- The EyeWriter (http://www.eyewriter.org/) has Friday 12 March 2010, been chosen as the winner of the first FutureEverything Award, a £10,000 prize set up by FutureEverything to celebrate the creative imagination that will shape our future.

The EyeWriter is a pair of low-cost eye-tracking glasses that allow artists and graffiti writers with paralysis to draw using only their eyes. Inspired by Tony Quan, a graffiti writer, social activist and publisher who was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (AML) in 2003, The EyeWriter is the result of a collaboration with five other artists and a production company. It is an ongoing project to empower people suffering from degenerative neuromuscular diseases with creative technologies.

Open Call for Entries for All Photographers; Black & White Photography

Open Call for Entries for All Photographers; Black & White Photography

“Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.” - Robert Frank

What does "black and white" mean to contemporary photographers in the digital age? When Robert Frank made this observation, black-and-white film and silver prints were photography's most commonly used materials. Nearly a half century later they are approaching "alternative media" status. Or are they? Are the implications and meanings of black and white still central to photography's unique nature as a visual medium?
