ADA welcomes Scholars!

The Archive of Digital Art expands its field and includes scholars in its documentation. Scholars are invited to become members of the online community and set up their own ADA entry!

Scholars have the possibility to upload publications and text pdfs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant events and be represented in the Archive.

The community features also allow the active exchange of professional information with peers and the new “Light box” tool facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and teaching.

To ensure a high academic standard 5 published articles and/or curated exhibitions are requisite for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here.

30 years ago Wolfgang Strauss and Monika Fleischmann started to experiment with Virtual Reality . First in 1987 with "Berlin Cyber City" - and in 1989 with "Home of the Brain - Philosophers' Houses" => Golden Nica in 1992. Oliver Grau was maybe the first art historian who wrote about it - years later! Edouard Bannwart, Hannes Leopoldseder, Herbert W. Franke, Philippe Quéau, Derrick de Kerckhove, Peter Weibel, Simon Penny, Stefan Iglhaut, Regina Cornwell, Stephen Wilson, Itsuo Sakane, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Annette Hünnekens, Hans-Peter Schwarz, Karin Ohlenschlaeger, Christiane Paul, Dieta Sixt, Jadwiga Charzynska, Ryszard W. Kluszczyński, Rudolf Frieling, Steve Dixon, Jeffrey Shaw, Luca Farulli, Peter Matussek, Berta Sichel a.o. were companions and supporters. Traditional art history was ignorant and disinterested in art, which had to do with technology. vimeo.com/7560336 - www.facebook.com/MonikaFleischmann.WolfgangStrauss/

HEAR and see the science of MP3 digitisation: I am sitting in a machine; is an algorithmic work that begins with a recording of an artificial human voice reciting a text which is then run through an MP3 encoder over and over again. With each iteration of the loop, one may hear the artefacts of the encoding process reinforcing themselves and gradually distorting the artificial human voice by revealing its data format.
