Leonardo/ISAST Announces:

Leonardo/ISAST gives New Horizons Award for Innovation to Critical Art
Ensemble

The Leonardo/International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology
Governing Board (Leonardo/ISAST) is pleased to announce a special Leonardo
New Horizons Award given to Critical Art Ensemble (CAE). CAE is
internationally acclaimed for their artistic work in fields such as
biotechnology, robotics and tactical media. Their performances and
installations have reached viewers around the world and have broken new
ground in the often controversial area of new technologies.

The Leonardo/ISAST Governing Board voted to give CAE this special award to
affirm the principle that artists should engage emerging technologies and be
willing to take critical stances that may be at odds with those of the
mainstream. Freedom of artistic expression and research form a part of the
foundation of an open society. For more information on Critical Art
Ensemble, please visit http://www.critical-art.net.

Leonardo/ISAST recognizes the challenges that artists face as they strive
for exposure and recognition. These challenges are amplified for artists
working with new media and new techniques---especially for those artists who
are pushing the boundaries of the integration of art and technology. The
Leonardo New Horizons Award for Innovation was initiated to recognize new
and emerging artists for innovation in new media. Evelyn Edelson-Rosenberg,
Jean-Marc Philippe, Jaroslav Belik, Peter Callas, Patrick Boyd, Christian
Schiess, I Wayan Sadra, Kitsou Dubois, Gregory Barsamian, Graham Harwood and
Ewen Chardronett have received this award.

More information on previous Leonardo New Horizons Award winners can be
found at: http://leonardo.info/isast/awards.html.

For over 35 years, Leonardo/ISAST has served the international arts
community by promoting and documenting work at the intersection of the arts,
sciences, and technology, and by encouraging and stimulating collaboration
between artists, scientists, and technologists. Leonardo/ISAST activities
include publication of the art, science and technology journal Leonardo;
Leonardo Music Journal; the Leonardo Book Series; the electronic journal,
Leonardo Electronic Almanac; and our World Wide Web Site, Leonardo On-Line
(all published by The MIT Press). More information about Leonardo/ISAST
membership and activities can be found online at: http://www.leonardo.info.

in some way investigate philosophical, historical, or critical applications
of science or technology to the arts, are invited to submit an abstract of
their thesis for publication consideration in this database.

The LABS project does not seek to duplicate existing thesis databases but
rather to give visibility to interdisciplinary work that is often hard to

them at no cost.

[Leonardo/ISAST Network] LEA Oct '04: Art by Telephone, Leonardo Educators Initiative and CFPs


*sincere apologies for cross-posting*

Leonardo Electronic Almanac: October 2004
ISSN#1071-4391
art | science | technology - a definitive voice since 1993
http://lea.mit.edu

In LEA's October issue, editor in chief, Nisar Keshvani discusses the
Leonardo Educators Initiative and its various components  the Leonardo
Abstracts Service, Leonardo International Academic Community mailing list
and faculty alerts, and free subscription for faculty and students.

The Leonardo Abstracts Service announces its first cycle of shortlisted
peer-reviewed theses abstracts by Peter Anders, Elisa Giaccardi, Fatima
Lasay and Maureen A. Nappi. These abstracts were peer reviewed by the
2004/2005 panel consisting of Pau Alsina, Jody Berland, Sean Cubitt, Frieder
Nake, Stephen Petersen and chaired by Professor Pinkel.

This month's central feature "Art by Telephone: From Static to Mobile
Interfaces," written by Adriana de Souza e Silva piece discusses the
evolution of artworks using telephones, bringing her focus especially to
contemporary works using mobile phone technology. Her investigation explores
the ramifications of such technology on our notions of space, time and
social interaction and the interface between physical and digital spaces.

In Leonardo Reviews, enjoy a small but rich sampling of the stunning
diversity of topics being discussed by the review panel: including reviews
of a conference on Indian artist Sardari Lal Parasher, a conference on art,
science and spirituality, and a documentary film about U.S.
activist/author Howard Zinn.

new media artwork, and special issues on topics ranging from Artists and
