7th International Digital Print Competition/Exhibition
Venue: The New York Hall of Science
Dates: October 1, 2005 – January 15, 2006
Organized by: Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI)

THEME: EXQUISITE

Some people believe that all of nature is exquisite, however how often do we examine the nature of exquisite itself? A dictionary definition of exquisite includes: "carefully selected : choice; marked by flawless craftsmanship, or by beautiful, ingenious, delicate, or elaborate execution; keenly appreciative : discriminating; accomplished, perfected; pleasing through beauty, fitness, or perfection; acute, intense."

For ASCI’s seventh international digital print competition and exhibition, Digital’05 seeks to examine the nature of the exquisite in all of its ramifications. That may indeed have to do with "mother nature" on, off, and underneath the Earth’s surface. It also could point to our biological nature, human products, environments, or even to the physical manifestations of exquisite ideas. We are eager to see what the art-science community brings to this visual investigation.

EXHIBITION HISTORY

ASCI’s seminal 1998 public panel discussion: "Collectibility & the Digital Print" and subsequent digital print exhibitions, were instrumental in educating artists, curators and gallerists about the archivability of digital inks, thus assisting the assimilation of this new media into the mainstream New York artworld.
