Golden Nica for Jeffrey SHAW - Find his Oeuvre in the Archive of Digital Art (ADA)
Since more than 15 years Jeffrey SHAW is documented by ADA with more than 100 Artworks! In a few days he receives the Golden Nica from Ars Electronica. We Congratulate!
Check out Jeffrey Shaw in the Archive of Digital Art > https://www.digitalartarchive.at/database/artists/general/artist/shaw.html
Jeffrey SHAW has been a pioneer and leading figure in new media art since its emergence. In the context of the 1960âs paradigm of installation he started with expanded cinema, performance and participatory environments, aiming to change the traditional relation between object and spectator from a passive examination and contemplation to an interactive involvement and immersion. New technologies such as the computer as well as new user interfaces allowed Shaw a new approach to this aim and had been integrated and developed in his art works very early. He is internationally renowned for pioneering virtual and augmented reality, immersive visualization, navigable cinematic systems and interactive narrative. SHAWâs works The Legible City (1989), The Virtual Museum (1991), The Golden Calf (1994), Place-A Users Manual (1995), conFiguring the CAVE (1997) or the Web of Life (2002) coined the field in the 90âs and are still landmark works in New Media Art.
SHAW was founding director of the ZKM Institute for Visual Media Karlsruhe (1991-2002), where he conceived and ran a seminal artistic research program that included the ArtIntAct series of digital publications, the MultiMediale series of international media art exhibitions, and invented new creative platforms such as the EVE Extended Virtual Environment (1993), PLACE (1995) and the Panoramic Navigator (1997). In 1995 he was appointed Professor of Media Art at the State University of Design, Media and Arts (HfG), Karlsruhe, Germany. As founding Co-Director of the Center for Interactive Cinema Research (iCinema) at the University of New South Wales in Sydney (2003-2009) he led a theoretical, aesthetic and technological research program in immersive interactive post-narrative systems, which produced pioneering artistic and research works such as Place-Hampi and T_Visionarium, the latter shown at the Biennale of Seville in 2008. In September 2009 he joined City University in Hong Kong as Chair Professor of Media Art and Dean of the School of Creative Media (SCM). Professor SHAW received numerous awards and fellowships including the prestigious Australian Research Council Federation Fellowship, Prix Ars Electronica, LâImmagine Elettronica, the Oribe Prize, Gifu, Japan and an IDEA Gold Medal in 2009. In 2015 SHAW is honored with the Prix Ars Electronica for Visionary Pioneers of Media Art.
Edward SHANKEN: âIn SHAW's diverse work since the sixties, the audience animates the art object, which, [â¦], offers the viewer a transformative experience of uncommon phenomena and alternate realities.â
Oliver GRAU: âExperimentation with immersive image spaces is a hallmark of SHAWâs oeuvre, from his early work in the Expanded Cinema movement to his Extended Virtual Environment and his installations like âPlace Ruhrâ 2000, which are utilizable in multicultural contexts. (2001)â
Jury comment PRIX ARS ELECTRONICA, 2015: "Jeffrey SHAW is recognized as one of the most important pioneers of interactive art. He has powerfully influenced the creation of virtual environments and new innovative user interfaces. SHAWâs work spans a period of half a century and still continues to do so."
ADA: THOUSANDS OF ARTWORKS
Since its foundation in 1999, the ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (former Database of Virtual Art) has grown to be the most important online archive for digital art. In cooperation with established media artists, researchers and institutions it has been documenting the rapidly evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a decade and contains today a selection of thousands of artworks at the intersection of art, science and technology.
ARTISTS and SCHOLARS are invited to join the community and set up their own archive pages.

COLLABORATIVE ARCHIVING OF DIGITAL ART
The large assortment of information on Jeffrey SHAW and hundreds of other leading artists and their artworks were carried out by the artists themselves in assistance with members of the ADA community. The new ADA web tool allows members to archive artist statements, works descriptions, literature, information on exhibitions, high resolution images, blueprints, videos etc. Artists and scholars are invited to contribute actively to the archive and to work collaboratively on the documentation and analysis of digital art.
EXPANDED DOCUMENTATION FOR THE NEEDS OF DIGITAL ART
Due to the processual, ephemeral, interactive, technology-based and fundamentally context-dependent character of digital art, it is at risk for becoming extinct without an adequate documentation. Therefore, the ADA is based on an expanded concept of documentation, which takes account of the specific conditions of digital art.
