My video for Peter Gabriel, The Nest That Sailed The Sky, has won an award of distinction at this year’s Prix Ars Electronica. 

from the press release :-

“Glenn Marshall is the graphic artist responsible for Peter Gabriel’s music video “The Nest that Sailed the Sky.” The animation transports viewers into magnificent fantasy worlds in which plantlike organisms sprout, send out shoots and proliferate. The video was created with Processing, an open-source programming language & environment.” ……full list of winners here.

ahem…I’d like to thank…

everyone who introduced/inspired me to learn Processing, and everyone on the Processing forums for their support.

everyone on/at Vimeo for hosting my work, and all the encouraging feedback and comments.

and finally thanks to Peter!
