Siggraph was very important to my career. I was able to show Virtual reality in the emerging technologies exhibition and give a talk about my artwork to an international audience. Last year, I gave three presentations - it continues to be a space for cutting edge work. With that in mind, I have been chairing a conference called The Engineering Reality of Virtual Reality for the past 10+ years where our emphasis is on artists and scientists sharing and discussing VR together.

yes, Siggraph was the place that enabled new kinds of art to be exhibited. traditional galleries were not willing to show new emerging digital art. so siggraph was very instrumental in most of these women’s careers. it is well referenced in the index of the Book New Media Futures
