ASCI is proud to announce the opening of its 11th, international, digital print exhibition, this year juried by Dr. Arthur P. Molella, Director of The Smithsonian's Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation; and artist/curator, Cynthia Pannucci, Founder/Director of Art & Science Collaborations. Inc. (ASCI).

Featuring digital prints by: Frederik de Wilde, Roger Ferragallo, Mark Fischer, Ursula Freer, William Grabowski, David Hylton, Ellen Jantzen, Eva Lee, Jeremy Levine, Hariclia Michailidou, Mary Neubauer, William D. Powell, Jalaliyyih Quinn, Todd Siler, Victoria Skinner, Betsy Skrip, George Steuer, Terry Trickett, Olaf Willoughby, Bonnie Wylo, and Jing Zhou.

This exhibition's purpose is to demonstrate how digital technology is enabling new aesthetic imaging possibilities and conceptual statements. In the competition prospectus, entrants were challenged to create or share their digital prints that related to the following statement: 

It seems that no matter how many breakthroughs there are in modern science, life in our universe and on planet Earth is still full of mystery. Questions abound and new fields of science like biomimicry, astrophysics, nanoscience, neurobiology, biomedicine, systems science, and others are birthed to find answers. Along with these efforts, come the invention of new tools and technologies to assist scientists in their research quests, like the Hubble Telescope and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Some scientists are obsessed with answering profound and fundamental questions about the origins of the universe, or how to increase the human lifespan, while others grapple with solving our complex environmental problems that eminently threaten our very survival. Many scientific questions and paradoxes still exist... fascinating grist for the imagination of scientists and artists alike! We look forward to seeing your visual work about mysteries or intrigues in science, 2-d thought-experiments, or perhaps fantasies about scientific theories in physics like quantum mechanics and string theory.

We hope you enjoy the show!
