The Peter-und-Luise-Hager Preis (Peter and Luise Hager prize) was announced for the fifth time at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar (Saar Academy of Fine Arts – HBKsaar) in Saarbrücken, Germany, in 2016. This competition is to honour students for outstanding work and concepts dealing with the sensual experience and communication of technical, social and cultural processes. The competition gave students the freedom to choose how they wanted to translate the theme of ‘Netz’, a German word meaning network, grid or web, into a work of art.
Martin Fell, a winner of the Peter and Luise Hager prize 2016, has illuminated our Research and Application Centre in Blieskastel with atmospheric effect. Martin Fell has been studying Media Art at HBKsaar in Saarbrücken, Germany since 2010. His work, called Phōs, centres on the use of a self-built photo plotter.
Phōs, φωτός photós, an ancient Greek genitive noun, means light, stem of photography, thus ‘drawing with light’.
