Exciting news for a local digital education business in Morland! Adam of Invisible Orchard has been shortlisted (one of four contenders) for the Tate Britain IK Prize 2014. This is the first year of the prize, it recognises the most exciting digital creators in the UK today and Invisible Orchard is a contender!
The project is to create an incredibly Minecraft Map that will actually take players inside the art work, and even beyond, into the artist’s studio. Apparently the details and vision are amazing. Really exciting stuff and they are also the only family run, rural contender. The video even features the Orchard for a snap second.
There are 6 judges, and the seventh judge is the public.

Here is a video with a bit about the project and some of the images, which gives a deeper insight into the scope of the vision and beauty. It was made by one of the international collaborating artists that Adam would like to bring in. We thought you might like to see it at: http://youtu.be/HA-xPW1M9q0
