A challenge to digital artists to explore the complex ethical and societal issues emerging from genomic research and new genomic technologies.
The Art Exhibit Subcommittee of the 2008 GE3LS International Symposium is staging a digital art contest in conjunction with the Symposium being held in Calgary April 28-30. Further information on the Symposium can be found at http://www.genomecanada.ca/ge3ls2008/index.asp?l=e
We welcome submissions of original digital works of art that address the ethical, legal, and social themes related to the human genome, biology in the 21st century, or genetics in society. For the purposes of this contest digital art is defined as art that is created in a digital form. It can be drawn using a computer, created from a source such as a digital photograph, or be entirely computer generated. We will not accept digitized images of oil, acrylic or mixed media paintings.
