  symposia & panels


ASCI's early symposia, public panel discussions, and even the first Cyber Fair for artists, broke new ground internationally and created an historical context for all the new art-science permutations still emerging today!

New Dimensions in Collaboration

International Symposium 
at the CUNY Graduate Center &
American Museum of Natural History, New York City
Dec. 6-8, 2002

(INTRODUCTION excerpt)... "Laser beams and superstrings, generative systems and AI, X-rays and MRIs. From the macro to the micro, from the everyday to the exceptional, the legacy of Albert Einstein permeates this century through the tools we use, the research being conducted in numerous fields, and the continuing search for our place in the cosmos. Alongside scientists, technologists, and humanists, artists have probed and responded to the post-Einsteinian landscape for nearly a century. From installations that seem to react to the pull of invisible forces to the altered landscapes and mindscapes of VR, artists continue to push the limits of available technology, stretching and questioning our notions of perception, dimension, and time."

Nine of the world's most prominent institutions and organizations working in the field of art-sci practice (at that time) collaborated with ASCI to produce this important event. Funders included: The Rockefeller Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts /USA, and nature magazine.

Catalyst for Collaboration

International Symposium
at CUNY Graduate Center
New York City
Nov. 2-4, 2001

(INTRODUCTION excerpt)...
"How can scientific discoveries and the powerful metaphors of art combine to impact society at large? Some artists & scientists are exploring the promise of art-sci collaborative projects. This event will feature multimedia presentations on extraordinary collaborative projects involving artists and scientists, ranging from photographs rendered in hybrid grass, and a musical score based on brain activity, to sculpture grown from living tissue, and brainwaves transmitted via the Internet. The presenters will discuss the opportunities and pitfalls of collaborating across disciplines and invite questions from the audience."

Partners, Funders, and Sponsors included: The CUNY Graduate Center /NYC, The Rockefeller Foundation, AT&T, ArtStream, ArtByte magazine, LEONARDO Journal, and nature magazine.


Taipei Theatre, New York City
December 3, 1999

This symposium was commissioned in conjunction with the opening of the Chinese Information and Culture Center and Taipei Gallery in New York's exhibition "TIME MIGRATION" curated by Shu-Min Lin. FUTURE TIME was chosen as the title for this symposium because the second industrial revolution, that of digital technology, has dramatically altered our perceptions, use, and feelings about time.
Mathematician/physicist Brian Greene, author of the best-selling book, The Elegant Universe, gave the morning Keynote.


ArtSci99: Nurturing Collaboration

 The Great Hall
at The Cooper Union
New York City
Nov. 13-14, 1999

This symposium was devoted to examining the history and nature of exemplary art & industry programs, "Modern-Day Leonardos," and the new artist-scientist teams that presage the future of art-sci collaborations. The biggest challenge lies in reaching-out to the various scientific communities and gaining their support and involvement. But what type of scientist or artist wants to collaborate? And why?

Event Sponsors included: 12-Point Rule, ArtByte magazine, LEONARDO Journal, and PROXIMA corporation.


A Symposium to Find
New Models Of Support

The Great Hall
at The Cooper Union
New York City
Sunday, May 9, 1999

The issues in Cyberart at the end of the twentieth century were no longer how to get access, how to create one's own homepage, or how to use the Internet to make art. Artists have pushed this globally interactive medium in all kinds of creative ways: hypertext poetry, multimedia works, and even live performances. Categories have been created at prestigious international competitions to recognize and reward the best and most innovative work in this newest of digital art media. However, there are pressing questions that need resolution if this young art form is to survive and flourish.

Bell Labs & the Origins of the Multimedia Artist
Afternoon panel discussion
in The Great Hall
at The Cooper Union
New York City
November 8, 1998

The mid-1960s at Bell Laboratories in New Jersey (USA) was when several scientists  began "way-making" the transitions from analog to new "digital" forms of animation, video, music, and interactivity. Several of those creative scientists who were part of that heady period shared the projects and events that made that time so exciting. They included: Emmanuel Ghent (composer/ pioneer of algorithmic music, computer-controlled lighting); Billy Kluver, co-founder of E.A.T.(Experiments in Art & Technology); Ken Knowlton (an early developers of computer motion pictures); Max Mathews (often referred to as the "father of computer music"); and A. Michael Noll (one of the first pioneers of digital art, digital animation, and virtual reality).

Video Documentation now available of this historic event!


the Digital Print 
The Great Hall at
The Cooper Union
 New York City
Sept.27, 1998

This afternoon panel discussion explored the question: Is there a "glass-ceiling" towards digital artists regarding the collectibility of their new digital prints? 


ArtSci 98

Seeding Collaboration
ASCI's first public symposium...
The Great Hall at
The Cooper Union
New York City
April 4 - 5, 1998

40 of our country's leading research scientists, artists, educators, writers and representatives from the science and technology industries revealed both micro and macro views of their work in relation to issues of discovery, creativity, innovation, invention, and current challenges.
