I imagined a labyrinth of labyrinths, a
sinuous spreading path that would contain
both past and future and somehow imply the stars.
JORGE LUIS BORGES
The internationally recognized ACM SIGGRAPH Conference
presents today's most innovative digital artwork in the
SIGGRAPH 2005 Art Gallery.
"The Garden of Forking Paths"
The Art Gallery committee is especially interested in artwork
that traces threads through time and space, whether figurative or
abstract, linear or non-linear, moving or still.
We are exploring a key question: How does the use of computer graphics
relate to the form and content of the artwork?
In this year's Art Gallery, technology will serve and support art
in a very broad range of themes, from provocative and political to
subtle and personal. We are looking for work that invents new forms
of narrative that grow out of technological capabilities. The
subject of the work should connect to its form and medium, and
we encourage fusion of old and new technologies in theory and practice.
Works that will be considered include (but are not limited to):
We strongly encourage all artists who submit
artwork to also submit to other SIGGRAPH 2005 programs for greater exposure:
- 2D and 3D wall-based work
- Artists' books
- Screen-based work:
Distributed social networks
Computer Animation Festival
The Art Gallery is collaborating with several
of these programs to create a unified exploration
of art and science:
The Art Gallery will review interactive Emerging Technologies submissions
and share space with Emerging Technologies at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
(We are hoping to make optimum use of the Access Grid for distributed performances
by invited artists.)
Art animations will be juried with Computer Animation Festival submissions.
The Art Gallery will also review concept and storyboard art from accepted
Computer Animation Festival work for possible inclusion in the Art Gallery.
The Art Gallery will work with these programs to provide opportunities
for artists to speak about their work.
