"Call for Artists: Digital 07.Pattern-Finding"

Abstract:
Digital'07: Pattern-Finding :: CALL FOR ENTRIES :: 9th Annual International :: Exhibition of Digital Prints to be held at the New York Hall of Science September 29, 2007 - January 21, 2008. Organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI). "Pattern-finding is the purpose of the mind and the construct of the universe. There are an infinite number of patterns, some of which are known; those still unknown hold the key to unresolved enigmas and paradoxes." - Agnes Denes, 1967 (1)

Historically, pattern has been reinterpreted by artists from the earliest of times. From the incised pictograms on the walls of Egyptian tombs, the stunning cut-outs of Matisse, America's pieced and patchwork quilts, to the everyday pattern of light and shadow that captivates many contemporary photographers -- pattern has captured the artist's vision.

For Digital'07, we are specifically looking at how structure and pattern in the universe, whether visible or invisible to the naked eye, have become the muse for many contemporary digital artists. We seek to explore how today's scientific fields of systems science, chaos and string theory, fractals, nanoscience, genetics, molecular science, the wavelets or frequency of sound, or a myriad of other mathematical data-sets have influenced today's artists, scientists, and technologists in creating 2-dimensional art of exquisite pattern.
