FINALISTS
 
 
Tropical Malaise: Prologue by Domingo Castillo
Tropical Malaise: Prologue, a film examining life after human existence in the South Florida region. Taking place in the far future this film lingers on digitally rendered South Florida landscapes at a time where even the buildings have decayed back into the sediment. It’s important that the film employs the same logic and technologies currently in vogue by architects and real estate developers in South Florida when proposing the construction of new public or commercial buildings. It’s these same visualization methods and logic that have always shaped the way in which the city has grown and expanded. A kind of rationalism lost within the possibilities of technology and its capacity to generate vast amounts of capital.
 
 
 
Healthy Mothers Make a Healthy World by David Copeland
“Healthy Mothers Make a Healthy World” is mural that brings attention to the work of NGO White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood and healthy living. The mural will feature the image above titled “Tree of Life” created by Jennifer Taranto and will be featured on a wall facing an expressway for the duration of a year.

The White Ribbon Alliance (WRA) is an international coalition of individuals and organizations formed to promote increased awareness of the need to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all women and newborns in developing, as well as, developed nations. 
 
 
 
A Bag of Halos and Horns by Rudi Goblen
rudigoblen.com | @roohdi
"A Bag of Halos & Horns" is a literary and visual experience told through poetry, short stories, drawings, and photography inspired by Miami-Dade Transit and its everyday passengers. Mass transit, streets, alleys, and highways represent the bloodstream of a city, filled with an array of means. It is there we are all lost and found at the same time. Where some of the ill-favored moments of our lives are also the most majestic, some of our most bloodcurdling fears, are made funny: A horn can be holy, a weapon if it needs to be; and a halo can easily turn into a head-cuff if believed in too much. 

Moved by these components, Rudi is taking the time to engage in conversation with strangers over food, ask questions, heed their stories, take pictures, create artwork, and use their honesty, hopes, and this experience to fill the pages of a book. By sharing these moments, Rudi aims to give Miami a better understanding of the community, rarely seen by this city. 

Rudi plans to start an online #halosandhorns campaign, encouraging people to send selfies, that he will then illustrate in a similar style to the artwork seen throughout the book. Illustrations will be given as a gift of gratitude for posting on different social media networks. Rudi also plans to make t-shirts, posters, bookmarks, and stickers with the original artwork to accompany the first few book purchases.
