August 3: Call for Entries, “Digital 09: Mysteries in Science” Exhibition in NYC

Digital ’09:
Mysteries in Science

11th International Digital Print Open Competition/Exhibition 

Held at the New York Hall of Science October 3, 2009 – January 31, 2010
Organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI)

From the ASCI website:
“It seems that no matter how many breakthroughs there are in modern science, life in our universe and on planet Earth is still full of mystery. Questions abound and new fields of science are birthed to find answers, like biomimicry, astrophysics, nanoscience, neurobiology, biomedicine, systems science, and others. Along with these efforts, come the invention of new tools and technologies to assist scientists in their research quests, like the Hubble Telescope and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Scientists are obsessed with answering profound and fundamental questions about the origins of the universe and how to increase the human lifespan, while others grapple with solving our complex environmental problems that eminently threaten our very survival. Many scientific questions and paradoxes still exist… fascinating grist for the imagination of artists and scientists alike!  

ASCI invites you to share your digital prints about mysteries or intrigues in science, 2-d thought-experiments, or perhaps fantasies about scientific theories in physics like quantum mechanics and string theory.

ENTRY DEADLINE: August 3, 2009




ASCI was one of the first organizations in the world to recognize the digital print as a valid fine art product in 1998 by organizing an afternoon panel discussion, “Collectibility & the Digital Print.” The event was held in The Great Hall at Cooper Union, New York City, in conjunction with ASCI’s first international digital print competition-exhibition.
Founded in 1988, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI) is an international, nonprofit organization based in New York City. Its mission is to raise public awareness about artists and scientists using science and technology to explore new forms of creative expression, and to increase communication and collaboration between these fields. Explore our extensive archives of past Exhibitions, Featured Members, ASCI Members’ News and Homepages Listing, and discover the amazing resource information in our monthly ASCI eBulletin .

Art in Science | Science in Art
February 7 – August 23, 2009

This is a juried exhibition of images made by University of Colorado-affiliated scientists and artists. Scientists were asked to submit images that they made as part of their everyday work. Artists whose images illustrate or offer insights into scientific principles were also asked to take part. The questions we were asking: How wide is the gulf between Science and Art? Can there be any communication across it? If a scientist makes an image that looks like art, is that a happy accident or are some scientists intentionally making their work more “artistic” than strictly necessary, and if so, why? And why would an artist want to include Plank’s Constant in a painting?

The exhibit showcases the extraordinary talents and range of scientists and artists in Colorado, where 4 of the 20 highest concentrations of science and technology workers in the country are located. No state gets so much productivity from such a modest investment in higher education. “
