A Vote for Kinetic Art - Black'n'White Contest at Space 4 Art

Although everybody of the participants showed a worthy piece of art, the playful background behind an art contest is to find winners. And in this case the first 3 winners were all followers of kinetic art and it seems that the jury and the public voters had the same preference.
kjs Yip with his flexi-prim composition It's Me - A Paper-Cut made the 3rd prize with 800 LL.
The 2nd position, getting 1200 LL, holds the French artist Louly Loon with her awesome animated Dance in Black and White
And clearly nominated for the 1st position with 2000 LL has been Moewe Winkler with her work Sometimes Synchronic, a kinetic pieceof floating airiness.
150 avatars have visited and probably voted in this contest. The results of the public and the jury contest are added and show a generalised opinion, which has nothing to do with an absolute truth or an ever valid objectivity.
The contest has been sponsored by the owners of the Space 4 Art sim, ChapTer Kronfeld, Lilia Artis, Moe Sandalwood and Asmita Duranjaya, who were also working as jury, except of Lilia, who has been volontariously replaced by an external judge. 
To honor non-kinetic artists too, Asmita and ChapTer had decided, to dedicate two honorable mention awards to the best voted sculpture and 2D-picture. 
So Xirana Oximoxi with her sculpture Night Queen and Gitu Aura with her picture Headache received both 400LL. 
The exhibition of all the black and white pieces can be visited until 1st of September in the TopGallery at Space 4 Art.
