ACM SIGGRAPH's DIGITAL ARTS COMMUNITY (DAC)
The ICIDS 2014 Art Exhibition provides a platform for artists to explore this new medium for storytelling from the perspective of a particular curatorial theme: "remembering/forgetting". Note that the curatorial theme is intended to inspire, not constrain, and will be developed further to accommodate the accepted works.
Remembering/forgetting can refer to how we remember ways of telling stories in old or traditional media (oral storytelling, written stories, theatre, comics, radio, television, film), and how, when we start working with a new medium, our memories of older media influence the ways that we tell, experience and understand stories in the new medium. At some point we need to try to forget these old ways of telling and experiencing, so that we can learn new ways of telling and experiencing stories particular to the affordances of the new medium. Perhaps there is a need for selective remembering and forgetting, as we learn the strengths of a new medium and carry across what still works from older media.
