THE ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (ADA) FEATURES SCENOCOSME

Check it out: www.digitalartarchive.at 

The ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (ADA) features the artist duo SCENOCOSME
(Gregory LASSERRE & Anais MET DEN ANCXT), known for their inimitable
poetic language of visualization and sonification of interrelations
between humans and nature. The collective explores (invisible) energy
flows between living beings and/or between humans and their
environments by means of technology and make them perceptible for
spectators. Their interactive artworks and choreographic collective
performances make attendees share extraordinary sensory experiences.

âLights Contactsâ (2010), âAkousmafloreâ (2007), âAlsos*â
(2006) or
âSphÃrAlÃasâ (2004) are remarkable immersive environments and
acousmatic soundscapes reflecting on connectivity and alternative ways
of communication. At the intersection of art and science the artists
explore sensor technologies and develop complex software transforming
ânatural energyâ like static, heat or breath into sound and light
installations.


Evelyn TSITAS: âLights Contacts invites people to touch another to
create sound and light according to the intensity of their
electrostatic
energy. The work perfectly illustrates [â] connectivity in the age of
technology.â

Peter WEIBEL: âTechnology is nature made by humans. Scenocosme
makes the man-made voice of nature visible and audible.â
[Technik ist vom Menschen gemachte Natur. Scenocosme macht
sichtbar und hÃrbar, wie die vom Menschen gemachte Stimme der
Natur klingt.]

Catherine MASON: âScenocosme have been exploring âenergetic
coherence between living beings and their environmentâ in their art
for the last few years. By contrasting the relationship between the
natural
world and the man-made Scenocosmeâs art highlights the challenges
facing our planet and our human responses to itâ


COLLABORTIVE ARCHIVING OF DIGITAL ART
The large assortment of information on SCENOCOSME and hundreds
of other leading artists and their artworks were carried out by the
artists themselves in assistance with members of the ADA community.
The new ADA web tool allows members to archive artist statements,
works descriptions, literature, information on exhibitions, high
resolution
 images, blueprints, videos etc. Artists and scholars are invited to
contribute actively to the archive and to work collaboratively on the
documentation and analysis of digital art.

EXPANDED DOCUMENTATION FOR THE NEEDS OF DIGITAL ART
Due to the processual, ephemeral, interactive, technology-based and
fundamentally context-dependent character of digital art, it is at
risk for becoming extinct without an adequate documentation.
Therefore,
the ADA is based on an expanded concept of documentation, which takes
account of the specific conditions of digital art.

THE ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART â PIONEER IN THE FIELD
Since its foundation in 1999, the Archive of Digital Art (former
Database of Virtual Art) has become the most important scholarly
online archive for media art. In cooperation with established media
artists,
researchers, and institutions, it has been documenting the rapidly
evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a
decade and contains today a selection of thousands of artworks at the
intersection of art, science, and technology.
