The ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Art Community (DAC) is now accepting submissions for their upcoming online exhibition, "Altered Books: Digital Interventions."
The exhibition is a celebration of the book as an object. An object that can carry experience, represent language, tell a story, convey culture and archive memory. The exhibition judges consider an "altered" book to be an artistic production made through the process of de-construction and re-construction of the book form. They are interested in "digital interventions" that result in still images of altered books which reference the legacy and symbolism of books, scrolls, manuscripts, and/or clay tablets.
Artists are encouraged to explore the merging of digital and analog, narrative and abstraction, 2D and 3D, or other creative digital interventions based on books. The is no fee to submit to the exhibition or participate (if selected), though each artist is limited to six submissions. All submissions are due by March 15.
