DIGITAL'09: MYSTERIES IN SCIENCE
11th International Digital Print Competition/Exhibition
to be held at the New York Hall of Science
October 3, 2009 - January 31, 2010
Organized by Art & Science Collaborations (ASCI)
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 the submission of digital prints about mysteries or intrigues in science, 2-dimensional thought-experiments, or perhaps fantasies about scientific theories in physics like quantum mechanics and string theory.
Good News… This year the museum will furnish 18" x 24" frames so that artists will only have to print and send in cardboard tubes, thus saving on this expenses and our carbon footprint!

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. http://www.asci.org/Digital98/digipanel.html
