The ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART opens up for SCHOLARS!
The ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (ADA), the most advanced online archive for digital art, expands its scope of documentation by including scholars to the database.
SCHOLARS are invited to become members of the online community and set up their ADA profile! A monthly feature introduces selected scholars and their research to all ADA users.
Currently ADA features the Singapore based philosopher and designer Denisa KERA and Ryszard W. Kluszczynski, polish pioneer in the field of New Media Art and Professor at Lodz University, Poland. Find out more about their research interests, publications, exhibitions and recent lectures, or download free text pdfs from their ADA profile pages.
To ensure a high academic standard, five published articles and/or curated exhibitions are required for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here: www.digitalartarchive.at/support/account-request.html
SHARE YOUR RESEARCH WITH PEERS AND THE COMMUNITY
Community members can upload publications and PDFs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant news.
COLLABORATIVE ANALYSIS AND PROACTIVE KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER
With the support of two large international grants, the archive has been transferred into a Web 2.0 environment. The aim is to provide community features and user-oriented applications to enable a collective scientific exchange between artists, researchers, scholars, engineers and the public to foster interdisciplinary and global collaborative analysis and a proactive process of knowledge transfer.
Community features allow active exchange of professional information with peers. The new Light box tool facilitates the examination and comparison of various image phenomena for teaching and research purposes.
ADA: THOUSANDS OF ARTWORKS
