Announcing the Open Call for…Â Digital’2010: PLANET EARTH
Art & Science Collaboration’sÂ 12th internationalÂ digital print competition/exhibitionÂ to be held atÂ the New York Hall of Science October 3, 2010 – January 31, 2011
Submission deadline:Â August 16, 2010
Our blue planet, spinning like a jewel in our solar system, has been perceptually defined by the technology of each era, from believing it was flat, to the scientific understanding that Earth spins on its axis and has gravitational pull, to being part of just one of many solar systems. In terms of scale, humans are too small to viscerally comprehend our planetâ€™s magnitude and the dynamics of its interconnected physical systems. We therefore break the concepts down into smaller parts, collect data and physical specimens of all kinds, and invent instruments to measure and track physical phenomena like earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes. However, we still cannot grasp the â€œbig pictureâ€ of planet Earth unless we read, look at photos, and finallyâ€¦ use our imagination toÂ envision/conceptualize it!
For Digitalâ€™2010, we invite artists and scientists to submit their original digital prints that reflect their perceptions of our planet. Are these perceptions changing as we learn more about Earth from explorers, scientists, and artists? What is the relationship between all living things and planet Earth? What images are evoked by calling it the blue planet or the peaceful planet or the changing planet?Â What is the human impact on the whole planet? What is our concern for its future?
~Â Maddy Rosenberg, artist, curator, owner/director Central Booking Gallery, Brooklyn, New York City

ASCI’s SUPPORT OF DIGITAL PRINTS:
ASCI was one of the first organizations in the world to recognize the digital print as a valid fine art product in 1998 by organizing an afternoon panel discussion,Â “Collectibility & the Digital Print.”The event was held in The Great Hall at Cooper Union, New York City, in conjunction with ASCI’s first international digital print competition/exhibition.
