30 May 2011 | David Haines and Joyce Hinterding have won the 2011 Anne Landa Award for video and new media art.

They were selected for
The outlands, a new interactive video work. Rather than the structured, reactive and often violent zones of video games, The outlands rewards unstructured movement and allows viewers to move through an immersive world of forests, islands and futuristic interiors.

This year’s award was judged by Edmund Capon, director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Wayne Tunnicliffe, who has recently been promoted to head of Australian art. Curator Justin Paton selected the finalists.

Haines & Hinterding receive $25,000 and their work will also be acquired by AGNSW.

The duo also maintain solo practices in addition to their collaborations, which are typically large-scale large-scale new media works dealing with sensation and immersion in digital worlds.

The finalists exhibition for the Anne Landa Award continues at AGNSW until 10 July 2011.
