SIGGRAPH 2015, in collaboration with Leonardo/ISAST, features not only artists and artwork, but also the processes and theoretical frameworks for making art and contextualizing its place in society. Art Papers:
- Explore the changing roles of artists and the methods of art-making in our increasingly networked and computationally mediated world.
- Present excellent ideas in accessible ways.
- Inform artistic disciplines, set standards, and stimulate future trends.
In addition to core topics related to digital arts and interactive techniques, Art Papers can also explore the theme of SIGGRAPH 2015's juried Art Gallery: Hybrid Craft.
Authors present Art Papers in 20-minute sessions with five minutes of Q&A. The papers are published in a special issue of Leonardo, The Journal of the International Society of the Arts, Sciences and Technology. The issue also includes visual documentation of the works exhibited in the Art Gallery. Publication of this seventh special issue coincides with SIGGRAPH 2015.
