Now in its 6th year, The Lumen Prize has already 
awarded over $40,000 in prize money and has 
staged over 30 exhibitions worldwide, in cities 
including London, New York, Shanghai, Amsterdam 
and Athens.

In 2016 the Gold Award was presented to the 
Italian duo Fabio Giampietro and Alessio de 
Vecchi for Hyperplanes of Simultaneity, a virtual 
reality experience which transformed the 
traditional canvas into a 360° cityscape. Since 
winning the award the duo have been featured in 
national, technology and arts press, and Fabio 
recently hosted a series of workshops at the 
House of Peroni experiential event in London.
