>Subject: History of Computer Graphics and Art;Call for Participation
>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. 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, and people 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 ACM/ 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 in the history of inventions, 
>we ask to participate anybody involved in the progress of these fields, 
>from software/hardware programmers to scientists 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 URL to anyone you feel could contribute to this project.
>This call and the release form is posted on the ACM/SIGGRAPH website:
>-- 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) and higher resolution (200, 300 dpi) 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 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, along with your contact 
>address (URL address cannot be accepted as a valid entry), and signed on 
>paper, dated permission forms at the address:
>Anna Ursyn,
>Department of Visual Arts,
>University of Northern Colorado,
>Greeley, CO 80639, USA.
>Please answer the following questions. The goal is to create a resource 
>that conveys the interrelated histories of computer graphics and computer art.
>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 art/graphics?
>7. Which persons would you indicate as the pioneers in the particular 
>areas/stages in which decade?
>Please type the following:
>Creator's  Name: ____________________________________________________________
>Company Name (optional): _________________________________________________
>Address: _______________________________________________________________
>City, State/Province Zip Code, and Country or Postal Code, City, and Country:

>to publish my statements and images/artwork (200-300 and 72 dpi) for a web 
>site display , a
>CD-Rom,, immersive display and its library, and a publication (please feel 
>free to cross out whatever you do not grant permission for). I understand 
>that the creators will be duly credited for their work.
