Washington, District of ColumbiaAward of Excellence: $2,000Age: 25 "I like my art to hinge on a point where things are always just out of my control--running on their own momentum. This leads to a variability that reflects both the random nature of my inspiration and the unpredictable nature of my own expressions while living with Tourette's. I find the tension between self-applied filters and uncertainty to be inspiring, exciting, and beautiful."

Inspired by creative pioneers such as Wassily Kandinsky and Brian Eno, Copps explores the places where the mediums of sound and sight interplay.
