Altered Books: Digital Interventions

Altered Books: Digital Interventions celebrates the book as an object that can carry experience, represent language, tell a narrative, convey culture, or archive memory in the context of contemporary arts. The on-line exhibition is presented by the ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community (DAC).

We consider the Altered Book as an artistic production made through the process of de-construction and re-construction of the book form. We are interested in Digital Interventions yielding screen-based still imagery that uses the legacy and symbolism of books, scrolls, manuscripts, and/or clay tablets as a point of departure.

Selected digital images will be presented in an online exhibition on the ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts site hosted at

The Digital Arts Community of ACM SIGGRAPH works to foster the evolution of a strong year round digital arts community within the international organization and promote a dialogue between visual artists and the larger ACM SIGGRAPH community.

We maintain an interactive Arts Portal and an associated social networking site that provides a central place for artists and scientists to share resources, information, artwork, and opportunities for collaboration. We also organize on-line exhibitions that are promoted throughout the ACM SIGGRAPH community and the international arts community.
