Body/Mind/Change - The Digital Extension of David Cronenberg: Evolution Receives Two MUSE Awards

On Sunday, May 18, Body/Mind/Change, the elaborate multi-media co-production between TIFF and CFC Media Lab starring David Cronenberg, with creative direction and experience design by Lance Weiler, was honoured by the 25th annual Media & Technology MUSE Awards, to recognize digital media achievements and innovations. Body/Mind/Change was awarded the Jim Blackaby Ingenuity Award for a project that exemplifies the power of creative imagination in the use of media and technology, as well as Honorable Mention in the category of Games and Augmented Reality.

Body/Mind/Change, a digital extension of TIFF's exhibition David Cronenberg: Evolution, immerses audiences in a "Cronenbergian" world brought to life online and in the real world. It is the first web interactive experience that generates a 3D-printed object based on data collected from the player.
