 Sylvie Lacerte, Accredited Researcher 2005

The Foundation is pleased to announce the publication on its Web site of the text 9 Evenings and Experiments in Art and Technology: a gap to fill in art history's recent chronicles, by Sylvie Lacerte. In Spring 2005, Ms. Lacerte was an accredited researcher with the Foundation, where she prepared a paper that she delivered at REFRESH! The First International Conference on the Histories of Media Art, Science and Technology, held at the Banff New Media Institute from September 28 to October 3, 2005. Following her in-depth research into the many activities conducted by EAT to support artists in their experiments with technology in the 1960's and 1970's, Ms. Lacerte asks why the chronicles of this groundbreaking organisation have been largely overlooked by the majority of works that examine art history of the past four decades. In her text, she offers a few hypothesis to help explain this mystery. [More...]

 DOCAM: Documentation and Conservation of the Media Arts Heritage

The DOCAM research Alliance announces the launch of its new Web site www.docam.ca. Initiated by the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology, DOCAM's primary objective is to develop new methodologies and tools to address the issues of preserving and documenting technological and electronic works of art. The DOCAM Web site allows visitors to explore the research alliance's key areas of focus:
- The conservation of works of art featuring technological components
- Documentation strategies and structures adapted to these works of art
- A typology and historical listing of the technologies deployed by the artists
- Catalogue structures and methods for works featuring technological components
- Terminological tools and structures for the electronic arts
The DOCAM Web site also offers a list of related research committees and their members, information on DOCAM events, and electronic and media art conservation and documentation resource directories. Research reports and articles on case studies conducted by DOCAM will also be added regularly to the site. And finally, a thematic scan of the key research areas targeted by DOCAM is accessible from the site. [More...]
