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.

10th International Juried Digital Print Competition/Exhibition
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 and computers, we invite 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!
