Art & Science Collaborations, Inc.(ASCI) presents...

The 2nd Annual Digital Art Exhibition
September 12 - October 10, 1999

New York Hall of Science (NYHOS)
Flushing Meadows, Corona Park, Queens, NY
In late October, the show will move to 
the Brooks Gallery at The Cooper Union
8th Street at Astor place, Manhattan

>From the cool, sophisticated design sensibilities of Abigail Doan's -
Hypatia II - to the hot, 3-D intensity of Marjan Moghaddam's - Adoration of
PacMan - and Jun-Ho Lee's introspective twist on Cartier Bresson's camera
seizing just the correct moment in time (in this case "memory") - Digital99
is a brief tour de force of digital hardware and software as expressive
tools in the hands of imagination. 

ASCI creates this Open Competition and Exhibition as a way to find new
talent and give their work visibility both in reality and online.  Probably
20,000 children and families will see the work of this year's eight winners
in the Computer Gallery at the New York Hall of Science and then in the
Brook Gallery at The Cooper Union, which provides a Manhattan venue closer
to the SoHo art scene. 

Seventy-five artists from around the world entered this Competition and
eight winners in two categories (Digital Print and Web-Art) were selected.
Last year's judge, Tim Druckrey, brought his vast experience in new media
to the selection process. That exhibition can still be viewed at -
http://www.asci.org/Digital98. This year, Therese Mulligan, Curator of
Photography at the George Eastman House (http://www.geh.org) in Rochester,
New York, was our juror. Although her experience with art websites was
admittedly limited, the George Eastman House was the first museum in this
country to collect a digital print for their collection. Therese said she
surprised herself at how much she enjoyed the interactivity of reviewing
the web-art entries and you can read more about her thoughts on the
selection process in her Juror's Statement.

We invite you to see the exhibition online at http://www.asci.org/Digital99
