Great news! Artist Adam Clarke of Crosby Ravensworth Parish has been shortlisted (as one of four contenders) for the Tate Britain IK Prize 2014 with the concept of Tatecraft! The first year of the prize, it recognises the most exciting digital creators in the UK today. Adam of thecommonpeople.tv was selected as finalist with his imaginative concept that will promote digital education and render the Tate experience accessible to many more people.
The project is to create an incredibly detailed Minecraft Map ( a digital construction game) that will actually take players inside the art gallery and artwork, and even beyond, into the artist’s studio. The details and vision are amazing. This is really exciting stuff and they are also the only family run, rural contender. The video even features The Invisible Orchard atelier in Morland, where people enjoy arts and crafts, some, like Minecraft are digital games, camouflaged learning.
