Bookmark and Share

Leonardo/the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology is pleased to announce the top-rated abstracts published in the English-language Leonardo Abstracts Service Databases during the first half of 2010.

Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS), consisting of the English-language, Spanish-language, Chinese-language and French-language LABS databases, is a comprehensive collection of Ph.D., Masters and MFA thesis abstracts on topics in the emerging intersection between art, science and technology. Individuals receiving advanced degrees in the arts (visual, sound, performance, text), computer sciences, the sciences and/or technology that in some way investigate philosophical, historical or critical applications of science or technology to the arts are invited to submit abstracts of their theses for consideration.

Top-rated abstracts in the English language database were chosen by a peer-review panel including Yiannis Colakides, Andrea Poli, Tom Lesser, Christo Doherty, and Sheila Pinkel and will be published in the Leonardo Electronic Almanac.

The top-rated LABS abstracts of the first half of 2010 are:

  • "The Implicit Body: understanding interactive art through embodiment, and embodiment through interactive art" by Nathaniel Stern
  • "fieldwork/fieldwalking: art, sauntering and science in the walkingcountry" by Perdita Phillips
  • "The Ear of the Beholder: Ecology, Embodiment and Complexity in Sound Installation" by Tom Davis
