SIGGRAPH 2009, in collaboration with Leonardo/ISAST, honors not only artists and artwork, but also the process of making art and its place in society. We are presenting papers that illuminate and explore these topics, helping people understand the changing roles of artists and art-making in our increasingly computerized, networked, multi-sensory, online world.
Art Papers present excellent ideas in accessible ways. They inform artistic disciplines, set standards, and stimulate future trends. In addition to the core topics of the digital arts and interactive techniques, Art Papers explore the theme of SIGGRAPH 2009's juried art gallery, BioLogic Art.
Art Papers are presented by their authors in 20 minute sessions with five minutes of Q&A. The papers are published in a special issue (Volume 42, Number 4) of Leonardo, The Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology. The issue also includes visual documentation of the works exhibited in BioLogic Art. Publication of this special issue coincides with SIGGRAPH 2009.
