Patterns of Choice: The Prix Ars Electronica Jury Sessions

Dietmar Offenhuber

A social network analysis of the Prix Ars Electronica Jury sessions covering all categories through the years 1987 – 2009. The networks reflect two different views of interdisciplinarity – one from the institutional perspective, expressed in the nominations for prix jurors made by the organizers of the competition (as many judges participate in several different juries throughout the years) and the second one expressed in the award choices of these jurors (awarding artists who themselves have worked in multiple areas and disciplines).

The paper was also chosen as the cover motif for the issue.
