Judging the winner from the top 10 entries in H&M’s ‘Your Art Here’ contest was a difficult task for me (and no doubt, for my fellow jury members, as well).
But there can only be one winner in the end, and I’m pleased to announce that it is “#H&MNYC” by Emily Ryan.
Emily’s art installation will be an interactive sculpture, that will allow users to participate by “graphically populating a New York City skyline in real-time – and simultaneously communicate with passers-by – via the Twitter hash tag #HMNYC, text message, Flickr, or an in-store photo booth.”
The installation will soon go on display at H&M’s store on 5th avenue and 42nd street. Please visit the stores to participate in the world’s first interactive in-store artwork.
I hope you all enjoyed submitting and voting for your favorite artworks in the contest. Though the contest is over, there is still a lot of entries being submitted. Check them out at the contest site.
