etoy wins the SWITCH Innovation Award 2006

MISSION ETERNITY wins the SWITCH innovation award 2006, a prize endowed with 15,000 CHF for innovations that involve a large audience by making use of the internet.

The jury rates MISSION ETERNITY as "highly unusual in artistic, technological and social terms" and commends the bold and friendly subversive undertone that disobeys established discourses about life and death, all while deeply moving the user.

The award ceremony takes place in Bern on October 17, 4.30 p.m. at the Museum of Communication, Helvetiastr. 16, 3000 Bern. The event is open to the public. You are welcome to discuss the sensitive topic and technical background with the MISSION ETERNITY GROUND CREW.
