Rules and guidelines for art works

Art in the eyes of Scientists and Engineers. Science and Technology in the eyes of Artists.

From one side, AST (Art, Science and Technology: Communication Among Three Cultures) conference brings together scientists and engineers of a wide range of specialties. In these fields people are constantly using visualization of information: from microscope images and photographs to mathematical models. On the other hand, people from different fields of art are often motivated and inspired by achievements of science and technologies. We would like to present the artworks that have been generated as part of research, industrial projects and realities, or are results of creative efforts that involve scientific concepts or employ scientific tools and methods as well as represent some scientific or technology idea in artistic way.

Who can participate:
  1. Artists who are using science and technology to explore new ways of creative expression.
  2. Scientists who utilize or generate art in the creation of scientific models and imaginary used to illustrate their concepts, theories, and discoveries.
  3. Engineers who are creating a piece of art on the base of technological process or industrial landscape.
What can participate:

Any type of artistic expression: pictures, photos, videos, sculptures, installations, music and all possible combinations.

Space for physical presentation of images is limited and will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis.

All images must be submitted in their final form and resolution. In case of images employing non-digital media a high-resolution digital photo of the artwork has to be submitted. Images can be submitted in PNG, JPEG, GIF, or TIFF format. The file size must not exceed 25 MB.

Content The artwork may deal with any theme in science. While artistic freedom is a primary concern of the organizers the nature of the event requires certain restrictions on the content of the artwork. Artwork that contains sexual, political or religious themes cannot be accepted into the exhibition and will be rejected. Works created for commercial purposes will also be rejected.
