SIGgRAPH Moments

(art)n has enjoyed showing in the SIGGRAPH Art Show since 1985-2001. ACM SIGGRAPH celebrated (art)n's aesthetic vision for collaborative visualization in art and science with its sponsorship of the hallmark traveling show, Science in Depth, organized in part by the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago. This monumental show opened at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and traveled to the Computer Museum in Boston, La Cite Des Arts - Montreal, and the NASA Ames Visitor Center. A final showing was presented at SIGGRAPH 1992 in Chicago and was hung around the perimeter of EVL's first public showing of the VR CAVE.During this seminal period, many women pioneers heralded the digital revolution alongside men that gave birth to the Internet, digital games, PHSColograms, and Virtual Reality–which established SIGGRAPH as a trending professional community for advancing the digital arts.  In this regard, SIGGRAPH was a major gestalt that was early to accept and recognize trailblazing women in art and technology from the Midwest that provided necessary leadership and creative roles that underscored the digital age.  Likewise, post-modern women artists including Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger and Jenny Holzer were first being accepted in the New York City art world. In parallel, the Midwestern pioneers of new media were given their artistic venue by SIGGRAPH.
