This year’s ‘Cosmic’ themed L A M P competition explored the link between sculptural object and far-reaching technologies. As a judge, I was delighted to see each entry present a unique vision of the future. May we all —as artists, designers, and makers— continue exploring these visions to define a creative future where art and science blend together.”
