Additional Information:

The Art Gallery committee received 143 submissions for SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 and accepted 19 from throughout the world. The Echo Art Gallery at SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 showcases a full spectrum of diverse media – such as light, color, sound, material, text, performance etc. – which are synthesized by various digital means creatively.

Quote from the SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 Art Gallery Chair, Yingqing Xu, Tsinghua University, China:

“The Echo between multiple media, discipline and cultures, is never simply repetitive. Each bounce enriches it with wider and deeper meaning. As you will foresee from Art Gallery at SIGGRAPH Asia 2012, this cross-platform Echo is accelerating and will gradually merge into a resonance that pervasively exists in human future.”

“Selected from all over the world, artists and scientists with diverse backgrounds bring us an immersive exploration at the edge where the real and virtual world clash and fuse. I believe these cutting-edge experiments will provide very fresh perspectives for both individuals and industries, to re-think how to balance technology and humanities.”
