CREATING SYNTHESIS (Exploring Art and Technology)(Deadline 1/9/09)

Sometimes the line drawn between art, science, and technology is invisible.  This is true not only in the subject matter, but in the materials used to create visual art.  The effect technology has on the arts and vice versa is quite profound and points to a direct path in both disciplines’ evolution.  The image does not have to be directly utilizing technology to be influenced by it.  Of course, photography, in all matters, tends to directly document the world, thus retaining signs and hints at the technological world.  Visual art of all types, because of its nature of reflecting the world in all phases of material existence as well as on other more ethereal planes, doesn’t escape the inclusion of energetic forces of the period of time it is created in.  Similarly, the synthesis of spirituality or metaphysics and scientific knowledge is becoming increasingly clear.  This is a time of awakening, despite the threat of “automitization” of creative vision.  The artist, by virtue of his or her persona, is responsible not only for the regulating of humanity with regard to its own purpose, but to his or herself as a creative, expressive being.  We are calling for art with this purpose in mind.
