INTERSCULPT 2009 : 16th to 22th of November
CALL deadline : 21th of September
Dear friends and colleagues,
Our Ars Mathematica association is currently preparing the 8th edition
of INTERSCULPT (the 9th, if we count the very first event in 1993!), the
networked biennial of digital sculpture, which also explores the
relationship between art, science and technology. INTERSCULPT 2009 is
planned from Monday 16th to Sunday 22th of November.
This year we will focus the conference and the exhibition - at the
French venue in Metz (Lorraine) - on the 2 international celebrations
concerning Astronomy and DARWIN. Here is the IS 2009 Web page:
Our event was selected by the "Ministère de la Recherche" and "Culture
Scientifique et Technique", as one of the 6 main events of the "Fête de
la Science" in France. Another interesting point is that a new CENTRE
POMPIDOU is currently under construction in Metz, and we will have the
opportunity to acquaint the CP Metz team with Digital Sculpture ....
If you are interested to contribute to the event, if you have worked or
if you are working on themes that fit our topics, we will be very
pleased to display your 3D renderings or animations, your websites, and
to show your physical works in the exhibition (we may receive the works
via FedEx, UPS, etc., and return them back; or we may build some
sculptures in using a 3D printer).
Unfortunately, at present, we don't have the financial means to invite
you physically to Metz for the event, but if some of you can find a
budget for coming to France, you will be welcome. It's also possible to
schedule videoconferences during the exhibition week.
INTERSCULPT 2009 is a networked event, and we know - at the beginning of
July - that at least 2 others places will organize simultaneous events:
- IS2009 Cincinnati, thanks to Pr. Derrick WOODHAM
- TELESCULPTURE 2009, thanks to Pr. Dan COLLINS
Please get in touch with them for more details.
We hope to read you soon.
Christian LAVIGNE & Alexandre VITKINE.
PS: If you are no more working in the field of the digital sculpture,
please forward this email to other concerned people you may know. Thanks.
