History of Computer Graphics and Art  --  Call for Participation

The aim that guides this call is an intention to assemble a data bank 
of computer graphics and art. The goal is to document the evolvement 
of computer graphics, art, and the thought about art in relation to 
the progress of technology, thus creating a collection of images and 
essays created by artists, scientists, and people who influenced 
these disciplines, which reflects the unfolding of computer art due 
to technical achievements (hardware, software, languages, etc). With 
this approach, computer art and graphics are related to the history 
of inventions in concurrent periods of time. This treasury will be 
augmented by the artists' web sites along with the existing materials 
cumulated in various collections and will become a part of the ACM/ 
SIGGRAPH resources. There is no sole comprehensive resource 
describing the influences and inventions in computer graphics and 
computer art from a historical perspective. The "Birds of a Feather" 
gathering at the ACM/ SIGGRAPH 2002, San Antonio, Texas (organized by 
Anna Ursyn and Anne Morgan Spalter) generated a helpful feedback to 
this project.

Those who feel their work contributed to the field of computer 
graphics, art, and the thought about art are requested to describe 
their areas of action and accomplishments. Since this approach calls 
for interaction between people representing various fields in the 
history of inventions, we ask to participate anybody involved in the 
progress of these fields, from software/hardware programmers to 
scientists and artists. Being a part of this project may be 
interesting both on a personal level and because it involves a great 
potential for new approaches in teaching and provides materials for 
visual learning. It would be greatly appreciated if you could forward 
this URL to anyone you feel could contribute to this project.

This call and the release form is posted on the ACM/SIGGRAPH website:
http://www.siggraph.org/education/cgHistory/history.html

-- Please send 3 images of your artistic/scientific creations, with 
permissions and short statements (no more than 150 words). Both the 
low resolution (72 dpi) and higher resolution (200, 300 dpi) images 
would be appreciated for a data bank of computer graphics and art and 
possibly for a publication.

-- Please contribute to this project by filling out our 
questionnaire. Answer as fully as you feel you have time for. Many 
various viewpoints are valuable. Also, questions may be used as a 
guide for the essay describing your contribution to the field, with 
visual thoughts which may be considered "milestones" in various 
decades (no more then 400 words). Send only what you own copyrights 
for and send it along with a signed release form.

Your paper-signed permission is essential because researchers, 
educators, students and all interested parties might use the 
resources for teaching, reference, general reading, etc.

Please send your materials on a CD Rom or a DVD, along with your 
contact address (URL address cannot be accepted as a valid entry), 
and signed on paper, dated permission forms at the address:

Anna Ursyn,
Department of Visual Arts,
University of Northern Colorado,
Greeley, CO 80639, USA.



Questionnaire

Please answer the following questions. The goal is to create a 
resource that conveys the interrelated histories of computer graphics 
and computer art.

1. Describe your field. Why are you interested in Computer Art/ 
Computer Graphics and what (event, need, idea, hope, obstacle) caused 
your involvement? Summarize your line of development (the essence of 
your input to the field) in relation to concurrent technology -- 100 
words maximum. 

2. Does the computer allow you to think visually about some topic or 
process in new ways? How has this influenced your work? Describe your 
ultimate accomplishment.

3. Has the field of computer art and graphics progressed in the ways 
that you expected? What has surprised you? What do you like about its 
progress and what do you wish had happened differently? What do you 
think the future holds for visual computing in science/art? Please 
make some predictions or wish lists for the near- and long-term 
future.

4. Describe your dream environment for enhancing your project ideas. 
What are your preferred tools for creating and how do they work? What 
tools (hardware/software) you have used initially had the strongest 
impact on your work?

5. Describe how you think specific advancements in technology, such 
as wireframe, hidden line removal, scanner, laser, HTML, Java 
applets, or any other advancement determined the way the approaches 
to creating art/graphics evolved? 

6. How would you characterize the milestones (every ten years) in the 
development of computer technology?  Which ones were most influential 
in art/graphics? 

7. Which persons would you indicate as the pioneers in the particular 
areas/stages in which decade?
