Working Artist Submission Guidelines
this year, artists will be offered the unique opportunity
to work and create art during SIGGRAPH 2002. Artists
are encouraged to serve as mentors in the creative process,
providing insight and inspiration by allowing conference
attendees to watch them work. Proposals that outline
a minimum of 20 hours of creation will be considered.
Ideally, the 20 hours would be divided daily over the
duration of the conference.
Your proposal should include:
Name of principal artist.
Names of any associated artists.
A publishable artist's statement of 400 words or less.
A publishable technical statement (400 words or less)
of how the computer, computer controlled systems,
or other electronics are involved in your work.
A description of what you will do at SIGGRAPH 2002.
Keep in mind that attendees will want to watch you
work. What are you doing that we can watch?
A description of how your work can be documented at
various intervals to illustrate visual process to
SIGGRAPH 2002 attendees when you are not working.
A list of equipment that you will be bringing with
Input or output devices that you could use in or from
the Studio for your work. For complete information,

An artist might create a 2D painting and print out
the progress twice a day.
An artist with a unique process might demonstrate
that process and talk with attendees.
An artist who has developed an interface to visual
movement (musical, for instance) might compose a piece
in the Art Gallery.
A performance group might "rehearse" all week in the
Art Gallery and give a final performance on Friday.
The goal is to allow attendees a view into the world of
the digital artist.
