4:3, the latest Horsecross Arts commission by Scottish artist and filmmaker Ross Hogg, has won the Vimeo Staff Pick Award at the Vienna Shorts Festival 2019. Currently exhibiting in Perth Concert Hall’s Threshold artspace, 4:3 is part of the first solo exhibition in a public institution by the BAFTA award-winning artist.
Commenting on the work, the Vienna Shorts Festival Jury said:
“Immersing oneself in a room lined with walls emitting the sounds of static, fizzes and pops may seem unpleasant, unless those sound blips morph into a moving symphony of shapes, colours and an increasingly catchy beat. For its charming, fun and mesmerizing approach to experimental animation (and the Virtual Reality experience), we present the Vimeo Staff Pick Award at Vienna Shorts Festival 2019 to 4:3 by Ross Hogg.”
To celebrate, Horsecross Arts, the creative organisation behind Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre, is releasing the Virtual Reality part of the exhibition experience on Vimeo on Monday 3 June.
