Susan Philipsz Wins the Turner Prize; First Sound Artist Nominated

Today was a pretty solid milestone for sound art. It’s the day that Susan Phillipsz, the 45-year-old Glasgow native, won the Turner Prize for her installation “Lowlands.”

Her victory served as a good opportunity for me to follow up on an invitation from boingboing.net to guest blog for them. You can read the post, my first for the directory of wonderful things, here.

 
And here’s a very nice welcome post that Madam Boing, Xeni Jardin, wrote to note my participation: boingboing.net.
