ACM SIGGRAPH Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement in Digital Art

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    The 2016 ACM SIGGRAPH Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement in Digital Art is awarded to Steina Vasulka, a major contributor to the development of an intellectual and institutional framework for video and installation art, which she has continued to nurture and promote in a variety of contexts.Vasulka’s unique vision owes much to her background in music. She studied violin and music theory, attended the State Music Conservatory in Prague, and played with the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra. After moving to New York City in 1965 she found herself part of the avant-garde “intermedia”—an intermingling of music, dance, theater, anlm communities. Steina says, “ere is no grander life than creative artistic life. It is the unknown, the exploration, and the fact of being your own person in your own time.”
