THE LEONARDO AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE 


The Leonardo Award for Excellence is presented to Hubert 

Duprat and Christian Besson for their innovative article on 

the manufacturing of jeweler casing using the larvae of the 

Aquatic caddis larva.  By removing the cadddis fly larvae 

from their natural habitat and providing them with precious 

materials, the artist prompts the larvae to manufacture 

cases that resemble jeweler's creations.


The Leonardo Award for Excellence recognizes excellence in 

an article published in the journal Leonardo. Excellence is 

defined as originality, rigor of thought, clarity of 

expression and effective presentation. The Leonardo Award 

for Excellence was originally established by chemist and 

inventor Myron Coler and publisher Robert Maxwell. 

Leonardo/ISAST has continued the tradition.
  

Recipients include Rudolf Arnheim, Otto Piene, Charles 

Ames, Frieda Stahl, Donna Cox, George Gessert, Janet Saad-

Cook, Alvin Curran and Karen O'Rourke.
