*Online* New Media Futures: The Rise of Women in the Digital Arts - Shared screen with speaker view
George William Price
Don’t be shy with your questions for the panel everyone!
Question for Brenda: Could you share anything about your work at Lucasfilm Games / LucasArts and what things were like during those early days pioneering interactive storytelling?
What role did SIGGRAPH play in furthering your art and careers?
Not a question, but I just want to note that the amount of legendary talent and creativity on this panel is mind-blowing.
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.
Thank you, Margaret.
This has been wonderful. So glad to be in your fine company.
Donna J Cox
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
Thank you all for the pleasure of your company today.
Thank you , Donna.
Charlie! yes, of course, SIGGRAPH has been a stepping stone for many of us to build our careers, to meet excited people like you, and to open our minds to what is possible and what we can do.
Thank you, Carolina (Great to see you!)
