I imagined a labyrinth of labyrinths, a
sinuous spreading path that would contain
both past and future and somehow imply the stars.

The internationally recognized ACM SIGGRAPH Conference presents today's most innovative digital artwork in the SIGGRAPH 2005 Art Gallery.

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):
  • 2D and 3D wall-based work
  • Artists' books
  • Sculpture
  • Screen-based work:
    Interactive art
    Generative art
    Open-source narrative
    Interactive film
    Web sites
    Distributed social networks
We strongly encourage all artists who submit artwork to also submit to other SIGGRAPH 2005 programs for greater exposure:
Computer Animation Festival
Educators Program
Emerging Technologies
Web Program
The Art Gallery is collaborating with several of these programs to create a unified exploration of art and science:

Emerging Technologies

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.)

Computer Animation Festival

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.

Sketches, Panels, Web Program

The Art Gallery will work with these programs to provide opportunities for artists to speak about their work.
