October 31, 2004 Projekt30 is a not-for-profit online gallery run by
artists, designed to find exposure for emerging artists. We are taking
submissions for our December Juried Exhibition. Thirty artists will be
selected, and their work will be sent to over 51,000 galleries,
collectors, artists, and other interested parties worldwide. Over
9,000 of people visit Projekt30 every month, and our mailings bring in
over a thousand visitors that very day. Last show we counted 306
instances of artists being contacted via our mailing system. We will
be following the \"publicly juried\" format we pioneered last
December, where all artists who apply will be posted online prior to
the exhibition so that visitors to Projekt30 may help select which
artists are included in the final exhibition, or contact artists via
email with feedback or opportunities. This format really generates
buzz and site traffic due to its interactive nature. The show opens
December 1st, 2004. Deadline is November 1st, 2004. There is a 300$
best-in-show award. The application fee is 35$ for 5 submissions, 5$
for each additional submission. You may apply by mail or online. Go

Call for Participation: History of Computer Graphics and Art

History of Computer Graphics and Art
Call for Participation

The aim that guides this call is an intention to assemble a data bank of
computer graphics and art which viewers can use to compare mutual
influences on computer related disciplines. The goal is to document the
evolvement of computer graphics, art, and the thought about art in
relation to the progress of technology, thus creating a collection of
images and essays created by artists, scientists, art historians, people
shaping the museum and gallery display and those who influenced these
disciplines, which reflects the unfolding of computer art due to technical
achievements (hardware, software, languages, etc). With this approach,
computer art and graphics are related to the history of inventions in
concurrent periods of time. This treasury will be augmented by the
artists' web sites along with the existing materials cumulated in various
collections and will become a part of the ACM SIGGRAPH resources. There is
no sole comprehensive resource describing the influences and inventions in
computer graphics and computer art from a historical perspective. The
"Birds of a Feather" gathering at the SIGGRAPH 2002, San Antonio, Texas
(organized by Anna Ursyn and Anne Morgan Spalter) generated a helpful
feedback to this project.

Those who feel their work contributed to the field of computer graphics,
art, and the thought about art are requested to describe their areas of
action and accomplishments. Since this approach calls for interaction
between people representing various fields, we ask to participate anybody
involved in the progress of these fields, from software/hardware
programmers to scientists, historians and artists. Being a part of this
project may be interesting both on a personal level and because it
involves a great potential for new approaches in teaching and provides
materials for visual learning. It would be greatly appreciated if you
could forward this link to anyone you feel could contribute to this
project. or
simply at

* Please send 3 images of your artistic/scientific creations, with
permissions and short statements (no more than 150 words). Both the low
resolution (72 dpi) 320x240 -and higher resolution (200, 300 dpi) 800 x
600 -images would be appreciated for a data bank of computer graphics and
art and possibly for a publication.

* Please contribute to this project by filling out our questionnaire.
Answer as fully as you feel you have time for. Many various viewpoints are
valuable. Also, questions may be used as a guide for the essay describing
your contribution to the field, with visual thoughts which may be
considered "milestones" in various decades (no more then 400 words). Send
only what you are willing (or allowed) to disclose, own copyrights for,
and send it along with a signed release form.

Your paper-signed permission is essential because researchers, educators,
students and all interested parties might use the resources for teaching,
reference, general reading, etc.

Please send your materials on a CD Rom or a DVD, your contact address (URL
address cannot be accepted as a valid entry), along with signed on paper
and dated permission forms at the address:

Please answer the following questions. The goal is to create a resource
that conveys the interrelated histories of computer graphics and computer

1. Describe your field. Why are you interested in Computer Art/ Computer
Graphics and what (event, need, idea, hope, obstacle) caused your
involvement? Summarize your line of development (the essence of your input
to the field) in relation to concurrent technology -- 100 words maximum.

2. Does the computer allow you to think visually about some topic or
process in new ways? How has this influenced your work? Describe your
ultimate accomplishment.

3. Has the field of computer art and graphics progressed in the ways that
you expected? What has surprised you? What do you like about its progress
and what do you wish had happened differently? What do you think the
future holds for visual computing in science/art? Please make some
predictions or wish lists for the near- and long-term future.

4. Describe your dream environment for enhancing your project ideas. What
are your preferred tools for creating and how do they work? What tools
(hardware/software) you have used initially had the strongest impact on
your work?

5. Describe how you think specific advancements in technology, such as
wireframe, hidden line removal, scanner, laser, HTML, Java applets, or any
other advancement determined the way the approaches to creating
art/graphics evolved?

6. How would you characterize the milestones (every ten years) in the
development of computer technology? Which ones were most influential in

7. Which persons would you indicate as the pioneers in the particular
areas/stages in which decade?
