Irish multimedia title nominated for prize

 

Born with a broken tongue is the title of a multimedia work by Martin Casey which vividly brings to life the experience of stuttering.

Casey, who created the piece as part of his MA in multimedia at the Dublin Institute of Technology, said he wanted to communicate the frustration of stuttering "emotionally rather than technically". His work has been short-listed from among 557 entries from 26 countries for the EuroPrix MultimediaArt '98 competition. Winners will be announced in Vienna next weekend.
