With New Submission Support & New Artist Specials
As pioneer in the field, the collective Database of Virtual Art (DVA) has been documenting the rapidly evolving digital installation art since 1998. www.virtualart.at
Beside new artist specials, which will be joined by editorial features, the DVA offers henceforth an innovative submission process: Collective documentation is supported by simplified *assist tools* to help upload information for publication in minutes.
Artists, and at this point an additional 282 theorists and mediaarthistorians, are members of the collective DVA-Archive. Monthly evaluated user statistics and open source technology support the collective process. The DVA received public support from various foundations, allowing its research-oriented, complex overview of immersive, interactive, telematic and genetic art to be developed in cooperation with known media artists, researchers and institutions of the field.
The DVA is based on the ‘concept of expanded documentation’.
Currently it contains thousands of work descriptions and digital documents, videos, technical data, institutions and bio-bibliographical information. As one of the richest resources online, with a systematic thesaurus, the scientific project was from its beginning a university based endeavor. www.virtualart.at
