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.

Alexander Kiryutin 18.01.2017 Dear colleagues,
The State Hermitage Museum and Saint Petersburg State University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics launched an Open International Seminar "Art&Science: Science. Art. Museum" in Saint Petersburg (Russia)
It is the first joint project of the State Hermitage Museum and ITMO University aimed at exploring the interaction of science and art in the modern world and demonstrating diverse applications of scientific research in artistic and museum practices globally.
The program comprises a series of lectures that are held monthly in the General Staff Building (The State Hermitage Museum) from November 2016 to June 2017. Each of the eight events examines one particular topic and consists of two lectures by Russian and international experts. The General Staff Building is hosting from 300 to 500 listeners during the seminars as well as broadcasting the lectures online to the broader audience.
Project participants — scientists, artists, conservators and curators — will talk about the most interesting aspects of the relationship between arts and scientific inquiry. What do physicists do in the museum? What is science art and how does one relate to an art piece that is made of tissue culture or utilizes a beautifully complex algorithm? Is it possible to create holographic archives? What is the future of design? How do technological and scientific innovation transform art and museums?
First two seminars featured 4 internationally renown specialists in art and science. In November Dr. Nicholas Eastaugh (Art, Analysis & Research, UK) talked about “The Matter of Art: Using Science to Reveal the Secrets of Paintings”, Claudia Lastra (Arts Catalyst, Centre for Art, Science & Technology, UK) spoke of Art&Science collaborations such as early works by E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology) and recent projects commissioned by Arts Catalyst in London.
In December Dr. Hans Bjelkhagen (Centre for Modern Optics, Glyndwr University, UK) delivered a speech about holographic optoclones & digital holography. Dmitry Bulatov (Curator at Baltic Branch of the National Centre for Contemporary Art, Kaliningrad, Russia) gave a lecture on the essence of science art as an interdisciplinary practice featuring the most significant projects in the field.
Among project’s future speakers there are Dr. Austin Nevin, chemist and conservator (Italy), Vadim Fishkin, artist (Russia/Slovenia), Paraskevi Pouli, Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (Greece), Ken Rinaldo, artist and prof. of Art and Technology in Ohio State University (USA), Maxim Artemov, Professor, Saint Louis University (USA), Oron Catts, SymbioticA Lab, The University of Western Australia.
Nea Ehrlich 09.01.2017 Hi all, I'm looking for examples of artists/exhibitions/ art-related research centres dealing with the deep web/darknet. More generally, art dealing with the notion of invisibility from a technology-related perspective also much appreciated! Anyone? Thanks!
