VITAL SIGNS will be the 14th annual, art-science, juried competition exhibition held at the New York Hall of Science; September 1, 2012 - February 3, 2013. This year we are seeking original art inspired by our biological world with a special interest in what lies beneath its surface, and/or reflects upon scientific research questions, processes, ethics, and the stunning discoveries being made in biology and the biosciences today.

Deadline: June 17, 2012

Humans, animals, insects, trees, plants, oceans, and air -- indeed, all that we see, taste, smell, touch, and breathe, contain molecular processes of physical transformation; a dynamic dance of change.  This magic of transition, called alchemy by our earliest scientists, became the science of chemistry. It describes both the physical structure and characteristic actions of matter. It allows for all organic and inorganic change to take place -- brain synapses to fire, oxygen to be formed from carbon dioxide and water during photosynthesis; the transformation of gases in our solar system; along with the ability of proteins to turn our genes on/off. If you extend your imagination beyond the epithelial surface of your body, or into the ether that carries cosmic dust, or even into your kitchen, chemistry can inspire wonder. Like a fabulous menu of concocted primordial soups, when exposed to changes in temperature, pressure, or speed, chemistry can create a stick of dynamite or a magnificent souffle!
For this exhibition, we celebrate the International Year of Chemistry by inviting artists and scientists to show us their vision of this deeply fundamental, magical enabler of life called chemistry.

INTERNATIONAL Open Call for Juried Exhibition in New York City...

12th international digital print competition-exhibition
organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI)
to be held at the New York Hall of Science
October 3, 2010 - January 31, 2011
ENTRY DEADLINE: August 16, 2010
All Details & Submissions are online:

We invite artists and scientists to submit digital prints that reflect their perceptions of our planet. Are these perceptions changing as we learn more about Earth from explorers, scientists, and artists? What is the relationship between all living things and planet Earth? What images are evoked by calling it the blue planet or the peaceful planet or the changing planet? What is the human impact on the whole planet? What is our concern for its future?

The museum furnishes the frames (18"x24"); If selected, just send your digital print(s) in a cardboard tube!

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.

ASCI is a 21-year old nonprofit based in New York City with an open, international membership and modest dues. Visit our site's archives of art-sci exhibitions, symposia, projects, Featured Members, Members Homepages... a great resource for curators, writers, and researchers too!


Digital'08: Imagination On Behalf Of Our Planet

New York, NY - One of the world’s leading art-science organizations, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI), opens their 10th annual, international, digital print exhibition, this year dedicated to exploring the use of imagination on behalf of our planet. "The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using the same thinking that created the situation," said Albert Einstein. By utilizing the almost limitless possibilities of digital imaging technologies, the artists in Digital’08: Imagination On Behalf Of Our Planet are contributing new perspectives on the diverse issues surrounding our planet’s current environmental crisis.

On view from October 4, 2008 through January 25, 2009 at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, Digital’08 is the result of an international “open call” that invited entrants to examine their environmental concerns, indulge their fantasies, and then share their digital visions of how a sustainable future might look.

"We hoped that artists might propound possible solutions to environmental issues. Instead, by and large, we were presented with fresh approaches to framing the problems. But the reframing of a problem can often be a first step towards a solution,” says Digital’08 co-juror, John Michael Gorman who is an author, curator, and Director of The Science Gallery at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.

And Cynthia Pannucci, Digital’08’s other juror, and the artist-Founder/Director of ASCI, believes that “Artists today play an important role in society by creating art that: provokes thought, helps raise awareness, provides new perspectives, gives hope, seeks a higher consciousness, and on occasion, proposes new solutions.”

In this exhibition, you are presented with images reflecting on our environmental stewardship [or lack thereof] that explore topics running the gamut from: physical and digital recycling, as well as an imaginative, new alternative energy source; the fragility of nature in relation to its sustainability and ours; the promises of science and biotechnology, and even the healing power of music; the sad loss of our “natural heritage” marked in time; while from less down-to-earth perspectives come suggestions of there being more to “matter” than meets the eye; as well as the celebration of a more holistic, cosmic consciousness that sees man as “part of” rather than “separate from” nature.

Participating artists & scientists include: Lindsay Bloxam, Christine Chin, Roger Ferragallo, Nathaniel Freeman, Jessica Gross, Stephen Harrison, Nicole Hatanaka, Joseph Ingoldsby, Katherine Kollins, Robin Michals, Steve Miller, Edward Ramsay-Morin, Hugh O'Donnell, Ruth Parish, Rachel Simmons, Lily Smernou, and Mark Stock.

The New York Hall of Science is one of the most renowned hands-on science and technology centers in the United States, featuring more than 400 hands-on exhibits exploring the wonder and excitement of biology, chemistry and physics. The museum is open: Tuesday - Thursday 9:30 am - 2 pm, Friday 9:30 am - 5 pm (free 2 - 5 pm), and Saturday & Sunday 10 am - 6 pm (free Sunday 10 - 11 am), and is located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, NY.
