Umbilici Bracelets, the SIGGRAPH Fellows Award
by Alyn Rockwood
“And the primal became two” - I Ching.
The two bracelets, emblems of Art and Technology, are duals. Art is an organic shape with a heart-shaped cross-section. It undulates and breathes. The sleeker Technology has a triangular cross-section. Linked together, the two bracelets represent the bond between these two human endeavors. They also gear one another; rolling one bracelet will turn the other.
Designing Knowledge is a 2018 ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community online exhibition. The exhibition seeks to showcase online digital repositories, archives and applications that make use of new media, art and design, and computer graphics to enable the creation, dissemination and preservation of new knowledge in areas such as archaeology, anthropology, art history, cultural heritage, all areas of geography, cartography, information and library studies, history, literary studies and museology.
The first major change is that all elected positions will be director positions and ACM SIGGRAPH’s officers will no longer be elected to specific positions through member elections. Every year, after the new EC takes office, it will select new officers from within the EC to serve one-year terms. The officers will be the Chair, Chair-Elect, Treasurer, and Treasurer-Elect. The Chair-Elect will become the Chair and the Treasurer-Elect will become the Treasurer after the next election.
