Fwd: RHIZOME_RAW: Keep the discussion to art


I have to agree with Wayne's sentiment - This is supposed to be a
moderated list - but it seems anything can get thru. I think a
general forum like the NYT's would be more appropriate. At least
that way people who have joined this list are not subjected to the
100 or so emails you end up deleting every freakin 30 mins.

But then again who I am I to suggest such a thing!

CALL FOR ENTRIES


The 2003 International Digital Art Awards is calling for "New Media" entries to accompany the annual print exhibition. It will be both online and "hard copy" touring exhibition travelling nationally across Australia and to Russia and the USA.

This is a new addition to the IDAA and as such we require artists to be able to create their entry as a dedicated page via their website(s) (no advertising please)... if selected we will link directly to the work. Artists can submit up to three works exploring any theme or new media style.

General rules for the IDAA can be found on the official website http://www.internationaldigitalart.com/IDAA/idaafront.html

Entries close 31 November for New media entries.

Enquiries to:
IDAA Director

Re: CALL FOR ENTRIES


Chris it's saying to "accompany" the print exhibition. It's main
focus has been on the printed image. The award has been establishing
itself over the past 3 years and now it will reflect and present
other digital styles.

If you really want to get caught up on -ISMs - I'm happy to re-brand
the term "static" to "digitally-produced art" just for you :)

DISCUSSION

Early fractals


2 new artists have been added to the Guest Artists Gallery (GAG) -

http://www.internationaldigitalart.com/guests/guestart.html

- Paul McCarroll - focusing on the work from his membrane series - multi-layered color abstract CT scans. "As far as my personal artwork goes I seem to unconsciously wander to the darker aspects of existence and thought. It has always been this way and I have always been attracted to the surreal, dark and bizarre."

- Wayne J. Cosshall - Art meets science! Pure fractals exploring bio & stem Cell structures from his 1990 series and output as BW prints shooting directly off the screen. "Fractal/mathematical art has a compulsive attraction to me. It allows me to cross-over my scientific/engineering background with creative work. It also has a mystical quality, which is what the Pythagoreans, Neo-Platonists and Kabballists of old must have felt. There is magic in those numbers, and it becomes visible through art".
