Winner at 6th edition
To participate, applicants are asked to submit a creative proposal aimed at connecting art and technology, two worlds that are increasingly intertwined.
“Art comes from technology. It is the opposing force that balances the disruptive effects of new technologies in culture. Art is the metaphorical aspect of the same technology that it uses and criticizes”.
(Derrick de Kerkchove, The Skin of Culture: Investigating the New Electronic Reality, 1995)
It is the etymology of the term “technology” that brings along and defines its close relationship with art (the word technology comes from the Greek "techne", art meants as skill, and "logia", that is speech, treaty).
Artists have always relied on technological knowledge and ingenuity to find the best materials and tools to express their dreams, thoughts, visions and beliefs, and each work of art is determined first and foremost by the materials available to the artists and their ability to manipulate them.
Not only does technology affect artistic creation by establishing the artists' possibilities of expression, but it also determines the passage to different functions of art, changing therefore the way it can be enjoyed. On the other hand, art, by its very nature, helps improve and increase the perceived value of technology.
The aim of this Prize is therefore to design a tool that the Eurosystem company (specialized in IT technology) can use to enhance the relationship between art and technology.
The creative proposal must consist in a video made using any technique and lasting up to 3 minutes.
The creative submissions will be selected by the Company, together with the Art Director of the Arte Laguna Prize based on originality, alignment with the company's hallmarks, and feasibility.
The documentation (including images) will not be returned.
The winner will be announced during the opening and awards ceremony of the 11th Arte Laguna Prize in March 2017.

All participants acknowledge and accept, as of now, the contents of the release statement.

Deglupta is an Italian company that makes use of creativity alone to create bags and accessories for women and men by using leathers and fabrics painted by artists and then sewn entirely by hand by skilled craftsmen. The results are unique and first-rate pieces of art, the outcome of creativity and ongoing research, both in the choice of artists and in the selection of raw materials used for production.
Artists interested in this Special Award shall provide some images of paintings on canvas that can be turned into bags. Among these sumissions, the company Deglupta will select the winning one.
Since the creations of Deglupta are handcrafted, special consideration will be given to abstract representations, because in them the subsequent cuttings and seams would not compromise the overall meaning and harmony of the painted canvas.
Deglupta will collaborate with the winning artist for a limited edition of the next collection spring-summer 2017, ranging from handbags to possibly some piece of furniture. The company will provide the primary materials for the creation of painted canvases and it will ensure the placement of the creations in some of the best boutiques in Italy.
For years Riva has been making furniture items that defy the passing of time and respect nature.
It all starts in 1920 in a family-run artisan workshop using exclusively solid wood. In 1992 Riva turns into a company and it exhibits for the first time at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan. Over the years it has started new collaborations with several designers and thanks to the natural finishing touches, to the warmth of wood and to the support of a smart design, the products start to be appreciated also abroad and Riva Arredamenti becomes R1920.
Riva also creates a Museum of tools and machines for wood working, collected both in Italy and Europe, which over the years has gathered about 2,800 items. In 2010 the new showroom of about 3,000 squared meters is created.
Today Riva is continuing to work as it did as an artisan workshop, the number of designers and architects of worldwide popularity is in constant growth and challenges are ambitious, such as the production of furniture made in unusual wood like cedar, the thousands-year-old kauri wood from New Zealand and the Briccola wood from Venice.
Riva 1920 is also involved in several cultural projects and social initiatives, such as the creative competitions aimed at young designers and architects and the project for the salvage of the disused barrel wood from the Community of San Patrignano, which is reused and worked by the young guests of the center in order to create new design works.
