Ali Smith nominated the multimedia artist Kabe Wilson:

Kabe Wilson's astonishing, funny, shining, risk-defying, literal metamorphosis of Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own into the visual artwork / brand new book, Of One Woman or So by Olivia N'Gowfri, which I finally managed to see in a rare viewing in its full unrolled form, all along one wall at an exhibition called The Reading Room at Cambridge UK Artworks, left me reassembled myself, glad of a world in which everything creative can unfix into even further fruitfulness and seminal manifestation. Its wittiness, sentence to sentence, actually meets Woolf's own; its rhythmic qualities and tonal dimensionality are stunning, and its unique take on what it really means to open a book is one of the most inspiring things I've ever seen.
