Leonardo is the leading international peer-reviewed journal by Leonardo/ISAST on the use of contemporary science and technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts and humanities on science and technology.

Once a year Leonardo/ISAST publishes the SIGGRAPH journal issue, which is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Leonardo and ACM SIGGRAPH to showcase the community of artists, designers, and scholars working with computer graphics and interactive technologies.

This publication coincides with SIGGRAPH 2017 and will mark the ninth year of collaboration between SIGGRAPH and Leonardo. Join Leonardo this year at the SIGGRAPH 2017 conference and view the annual special Leonardo SIGGRAPH journal issue featuring new Art Papers, and for the first time in SIGGRAPH history, the Art Gallery that is dedicated exclusively to works by Latin American artists and designers.

Art Papers

Leonardo/ISAST and SIGGRAPH are pleased to present the 2017 SIGGRAPH Art Papers selections. Art Papers investigate the roles of artists and the methods of art-making in an increasingly global, networked, and the technologically mediated world.

At SIGGRAPH 2017, Art Papers explore the contributions of artists to the development of virtual and immersive experiences, bridging the digital-physical interface through engaging our embodiment within virtuality: the emergence of consumer VR and AR, how immersive experiences are shaping the cultural landscape, and their potential contributions to human creativity in art, entertainment, analytics, gaming, medicine, science, engineering, robotics, space exploration, communication, tourism, transportation, and cultural exchange. This theme is supplemented with invited talks by emerging-technologies luminaries and panels of experts from industry and the arts.

Art Gallery

This Leonardo journal issue presents selections from the 2017 SIGGRAPH Art Gallery and recognition of the SIGGRAPH Lifetime Achievement Award in Digital Art recipient Ernest A. Edmonds for his major contribution to the development of computational art. And for the first time in SIGGRAPH history, the Art Gallery is dedicated exclusively to works by Latin American artists and designers: speculative artifacts that apply digital technologies to map alternative futures. View the gallery(link is external)
