This is an art project that collects photographs concerning past "ACM SIGGRAPH Emerging Technlogy" and makes an 3-D image archive in Second Life, aiming at this year's SIGGRAPH ASIA 2008. 600 photographs or more were finally collected.
It is created by Hidenori Watanave (Supervisor of Photon,Inc. / Associate Professor of Tokyo Metropolitan University), and conception by Tomoe Moriyama (SIGGRAPH ASIA Art Gallery and Emerging Technology chair / Museum of Comtemporary art Tokyo). Please refer to the lower side of this article about cooperators.
It will be exhibited in SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery (Singapore, Dec.10 - 13 2008). I will make a machinima (movie) of this project and upload soon.
All photographs of SIGGRAPH were taken and granted by:
Jacki Morie - SIGGRAPH 1993 and 1994, The Zone And Neuro Baby/ The Edge Brian Blau - SIGGRAPH 1996, Digital Bayou Kathryn Saunders - SIGGRAPH 1999, Millennium Motel Toshihiro Konma - SIGGRAPH 2002,2003,2005,2006,2007 and 2008, Emerging Technology / Art Gallery / Kids / NewTech / Slow Art
