Call for Papers: DIGITAL ART

We invite short and long submissions on Digital Art. This call
coincides with the inaugural DigArt

2008 event in Denmark ( Work addressing digital
art related practise, creation,

design, and production are solicited. Performance issues, alternative
interfaces for _expression_,

multimodal contexts, philosophical perspectives, tools and technologies
are all welcome. We

particularly welcome interdisciplinary submissions across these

With technological advances a new generation of Art interpretation and
_expression_ has evolved.

Traditional and contemporary artists are adopting, learning and
exploring the latest trends in

technology and, realising the potency, are presenting works that are
not only advancing the genre, but

also, like ripples from a stone thrown into a still pond, are
influencing across disciplines. Thus

repercussions are evident beyond what has traditionally been deemed the
art field.

The thinking and creative process has changed, the traditional
aesthetic is addressed and questioned,

one*s imagination can more than ever be realised through the
opportunities that are embedded in the

genus. The computer programmer can increasingly be regarded as an
artisan co-creator; interactive

computer graphics and other modalities of stimuli are implemented more
than ever to augment

performance composition/design and often used as a virtual partner; and
the advent of sensor

technology into performance has helped to inspire a new manifold entity
* the

programmer/designer/performer/director/producer *and any combination:
Thus, for example, the

dancer, musician, or painter can undertake to develop digital
competences to realise the dream of the

articulated NEW.

The Technical Revolution has arrived with an exhibited agency that is
reflected through the genre of Digital Art and its related

The new symposium series *DigArt* (, was inaugurated
in Esbjerg, Denmark in March 2008. DigArt 2008

organisers invited international luminaries from selected fields
presented their contribution to the field of digital art. A milestone

performance at the prestigious West of Denmark Music Conservatory
concluded the proceedings. A multidisciplinary audience

across age groups attended. This included existing artists, educators,
and engineers, as well as the next generation with a large

number of students. The cross section of audience illustrated the
potential from Digital Art as representatives from national

educations included those in therapeutic studies, business studies,
computer science, control, Medialogy and others. Such a

wide spectrum of attenddes demonstrates the interest and the many
dimensions and applications of the work across genres.

Submissions can either contain new original work, or be revised
versions of previously published papers. Revised versions need

to contain at least 30% new content, providing (e.g.) more details or
extensions with followup research. Authors should provide

access to an online version of the previously published version (to
ease work for reviewers) and explicate how the new version

differs. Each submission should be written in a way that is accessible
to the multidisciplinary audience of the journal.
