announcement and call for participation
Intersculpt 2007 – événements en France / French venues
This year, in October, Ars Mathematica (www.intersculpt.org) will organize 2 events for INTERSCULPT 2007 (the world-wide biennial devoted to computer sculpture and Art/Sciences relationship):
1) SCULPTURE NUMERIQUE ET BIOMORPHISME / DIGITAL SCULPTURE AND BIOMORPHISM
The purpose of this exhibition and conference is to present the current artistic revival of cybersculpture inspired by ‘shapes of life’ – from the human being to the cell via animals and plants. Venue: Conseil Général de Meurthe-et-Moselle, Nancy (Lorraine, East of France).
2) SCULPTURE ET MATHEMATIQUES / SCULPTURE AND MATHEMATICS
As the title says about the topic! The first edition was launched last year in Nancy (Lorraine, East of France), and then presented as a lecture at the University of Catania (Sicilia). Venue: ENSAM, Paris.
In fact, these 2 topics (maths and bio) are very complementary.
Some digital sculptors are more interested by geometrical patterns, some others by biomorph shapes…although they may be inspired by these 2 aesthetic fields which are not absolutely distinct!
As usual, a Digital Sculpture Competition will be launched with the help of our sponsors. Please look at the INTERSCULP web site in June for the details.
Please forward this message to potentially interested artists, scientists and art critics…
For the artists, it’s possible to contribute to the event without coming in France, in case they can’t physically join us. They have just to send to Christian LAVIGNE (firstname.lastname@example.org) informations about their works, and then, after ratification, the necessary materials (biography, artist’s statement, pictures, videos, 3D files, eventual physical works – that we will send you back). We will have two “3D Printers” at our disposal for the exhibitions: a Zcorp and a FDM devices, and a NC milling machine, so we will be able to materialize telesculptures. Moreover, the digital sculptures will be displayed in the DAAP virtual sculpture park (ActiveWorlds) – thanks to Pr. Derrick WOODHAM.
Thank you in advance for contributing to this event.
