DIGITAL’08: Imagination On Behalf Of Our Planet – deadline 10 August 2008

DIGITAL’08: Imagination On Behalf Of Our Planet
10th International Digital Print Competition/Exhibition to be held at the New York Hall of Science
October 4, 2008 – January 25, 2009
Organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI)

What are the artists, scientists, and technologists of the twenty-first century thinking about our current environmental challenges? Can their artwork imagine new, positive approaches to sustaining life on planet Earth? Can it inspire us to confront the consequences of our current ways of living? Through the almost limitless possibilities of digital image technologies, we invite our competition entrants to examine their environmental concerns, indulge their fantasies, and then share their fabricated/ montaged visions of how a sustainable future might look, which might include new types of hybrid forms: plants, animals, humans, cities, transportation systems, food, etc. Let’s boldly envision on behalf of our planet!

~ Cynthia Pannucci, Founder/Director, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI)

ASCI’S SUPPORT OF DIGITAL PRINTS:
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.
