The Art Gallery showcases fully realized artworks expressed through various digital and technologically mediated forms. This year’s theme, XYZN: Scale, draws attention to a key critical affordance of computer-based authorship: the ability to iteratively scale our digital representations at will: in-out-up-down, back and forth, + and -. These core functions enable us to change size and location over time, and at different degrees of resolution.
The SIGGRAPH 2013 Art Gallery explores how artists take advantage of these capabilities in the construction of and/or the aesthetic effects created by their work. We are looking for projects that engage the artful transformation of these scaling techniques to explore an idea, tell a story, or create an experience in a novel and engaging way. Visualizations, data-mining, computer imaging, 3D modeling, geospatial systems, simulations, sensor networks, multimedia productions, and virtual reality environments all share this potential to (among other things) explore an idea at different orders of magnitude, complexity, and depth; to compare and contrast the inner resonances of seemingly disparate microcosmic and macrocosmic systems; and to transpose sensory experiences across different affective domains – and, consequently, to mine the provocative and potentially disruptive effects such scaling operations might create.
All forms of electronic and digitally mediated art completed in the last two years are considered. Submissions of multimedia installations; two- and three-dimensional works; and kinetic, mobile, or interactive pieces are highly encouraged. Site-based proposals exploring the concept of scale that take advantage of the convention center space, and/or the conference attendees themselves, are also encouraged. In keeping with 2013's observance of the 40th anniversary of the SIGGRAPH conference, special consideration will be applied to work that engages with historical themes (the N as a function of time).
Artists and scholars are encouraged to give an Artist’s Talk and/or host a Studio Workshop if their work is accepted. Please indicate your interest on the Art Gallery submission form. Artists and scholars are also encouraged to submit proposals for Talks or Art Papers that address themes related to works presented in the gallery.
A special issue of Leonardo, The Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology includes visual documentation of the works exhibited in the Art Gallery. Publication of this fifth special issue coincides with SIGGRAPH 2013.
You may submit up to three projects. Use a separate submission form for each project.
