Founded in 1988, Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI) was one of the first art-sci-tech member organizations in the USA. Established primarily as a network for artists who either use or are inspired by science and technology, ASCI has become a magnet for some of the best examples of this type of contemporary art and for scientists and technologists wishing to collaborate. ASCI was instrumental in reinvigorating the art-sci-tech movement in the United States during the mid-1990's and helped coalesce the art-science movement [1998-2002]. It produced seminal public panels and symposia on timely topics: from the world's first "CyberFair for Artists"(1995) to "Bell Labs & the Origins of Multimedia Art" (1998), "Collectibility of the Digital Print" (1998), and explored potential support systems for early netart at "CyberArt'99." ASCI also produced exhibitions of kinetic art, interactive light art, solar art, digital prints, and a Womentek exhibition. Since 1998, it has produced four ArtSci international symposia on collaboration and the ArtSci INDEX, an online matching tool for potential collaborators. The monthly ASCI eBulletin [sent to ASCI members] is the most comprehensive resource tool in this highly interdisciplinary, international field. ASCI welcomes partnerships and dialogue with the scientific community.
