Two students in the arts awarded for FSU’s Digitech exhibition

Published April 3, 2014
Students, Lawrence Weru and Marissa Pilolli, are awarded the Expression and Entrepreneur awards for their exhibits in FSU’s Digitech showcase. Digitech is an exhibition that promotes digital technology and the different approaches between various media and academic backgrounds.
Expression Award
“Boy With A Coin” by Marissa Pilolli, Religion and Art History
Description: short stop motion video originally created to fulfill an assignment for the Digital Foundations course at Florida State University. The video has been reworked for Digitech. The original video featured a song of the same name as performed by Iron and Wine but has been removed due to licensing. The band’s frontman Sam Beam is a graduate of the Florida State film school.
Entrepreneur Award
“AstroQueue” by Lawrence Weru, Biological Science and Studio Art
Description: a patent-pending cloud-based app, which allows people to share and manage real-time waiting lists using any device, from anywhere. Astroqueue acts as a digital waiting list for any given site. It is used in sites that function in various ways to achieve the common goal of organizing client traffic. A device can be transformed into a kiosk, which works much like a clipboard to collect custom information from clients as they join the queue.
