Profile Information

Areas of Digital Art
Over the past decades, I have been creating artworks that investigate the digital network, human presence and identity as subject to a constant flow of online contributions, data and non-physical body representation. In “Networked Installations”, I have been mixing and referencing real, virtual and online spaces, mostly combined with surveillance interfaces.
Recent methods explored “Media, Miniature and Shifting Scales” as a distinct format of installation architecture to reflect these different stages of being through the miniscule – hence being inside and outside the medium.
Experiments in “Textile Media Narratives” explored digital media and mapping of collective space through fabric print, image patterns, embroidery techniques and other formats of physical object and embellishment.
These different methodologies and steps of investigation culminate currently in “Analogue becoming the new Digital” as my research question. Through further design and applied art approaches, I intend to establish a stronger emotional link between audience and media artwork. The virtual space is framed at as the other place of memory and home by capturing it in analogue paraphernalia, modeled on and manufactured from the digital. Craft and media design objects and artefacts render the digital space domestic and decorative, but with the intention to provoke a surreal and paradoxical sense of longing and belonging to a parallel world.

Congratulations on the exciting online exhibit.
Although the student competition has been phased out, the online exhibit is available from 1992 on ..

including one year with the exhibit also on 2nd life;so this would not necessarily be considered the "first ever" online exhibit if we honor the history of online exhibits. Check out these under the education link. Your work on this is grand but many have worked on almost two decades of these exhibits and may wonder about calling this the first.
Perhaps a technicality in this being only online? would be more accurate,but I thought I would respectfully point this out. All the best to you. Colleen

Hi Andrea and welcome to the site!

This is one part of a three part web presence the SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community (DAC) will have.
Beside the community site, we have a main site at which will soon feature curated online shows and a peered reviewed arts review online publication.
We have more exciting things planned & welcome your participation!
