> SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery call
> Acting in Translation
> Submission deadline: Tuesday, 21 January 2014, 22h UTC/GMT
> The SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery will gather and present outstanding,
> critical, and innovative artworks and projects submitted by digital-minded
> artists. While the essential aim is to provide a deeper insight into the
> relationships within art, science, technology, research, and societal
> developments, the Art Gallery also encourages strong content and
> criticality in submitted works, conveyed through the use of advanced
> technologies.
> This yearâs jury includes Basak Senova (curator and designer; the Art
> Gallery Chair 2014; lecturer at Department of Media and Visual Arts at KoÃ
> University), Mona Kasra (artist and educator; the Conference Chair 2016;
> digital media scholar at University of Texas), Amit Zoran (HCI and craft
> researcher; the Art Gallery Chair 2015; Post-Doc at the Fluid Interfaces
> Group, MIT Media Lab), Kate Armstrong (curator, artist and writer;
> Director of the Social + Interactive Media Centre at Emily Carr University
> of Art + Design), Cezanne Charles (artist, designer and policy-wonk;
> Co-Director of rootoftwo â hybrid design studio, Director of Creative
> Industries at ArtServe Michigan), and Mushon Zer-Aviv (designer, educator
> and media activist, faculty member at Shenkar College of Engineering,
> Design and Art).
> The theme of the SIGGRAPH 2014 Art Gallery is âActing in Translation.â
> Translation indicates a detached and forward movement from the source. It
> is also a freeing act, which paradoxically contains a burden of
> responsibility for the source. Therefore, this movement has limits and
> fine borderlines, yet it could designate âmoreâ than the source.
> Translation is a call for other realities and also another way to see
> other realities. Translation can also blend âfactâ with fiction by
> blurring the difference between them. In this vein, âtranslationâ as a
> term could be interpreted in multiple ways on different layers of
> perception. While this term indicates a mechanical act, it may also refer
> to global and local societal developments such as resistance movements,
> alternative economies, information leaks, migration flows, mobility, etc.
> 2D and 3D artworks, interactive, electronically mediated Augmented Reality
> (AR), mixed-media installations and performances, web-based art,
> responsive media, time-based works, works leveraging mobile technologies,
> works using digital communities and social media, robotics, touch-screens,
> wearable art, mediated music, sound and audio artworks are all accepted.
> Artists are encouraged to give an Artistâs Talk and/or host a Course and
> Course Lite if their work is accepted. Please indicate your interest on
> the Art Gallery submission form. Submitters are also encouraged to submit
> proposals for Talks or Art Papers that address themes related to works
> presented in the gallery. A special issue of Leonardo, The Journal of the
> International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology includes visual
> documentation of the works exhibited in the Art Gallery. Publication of
> this sixth special issue coincides with SIGGRAPH 2014.
> Submission deadline is Tuesday, 21 January 2014, 22:00 UTC/GMT
> Special Interest Group on Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH)
> is an annual conference which provides a unique crossroads for a diverse
> community of researchers, developers, creators, educators, and
> practitioners. SIGGRAPHâs mission is to be the premier annual conference
> on leading-edge theory and practice of computer graphics and interactive
> techniques, inspiring progress through education, excellence, and
