The Archive of Digital Art expands its field and includes scholars in its documentation. Scholars are invited to become members of the online community and set up their own ADA entry!
Scholars have the possibility to upload publications and text pdfs, announce upcoming events, post comments, document exhibitions, conferences and other relevant events and be represented in the Archive.
The community features also allow the active exchange of professional information with peers and the new “Light box” tool facilitates the examination and comparison of images for research and teaching.
To ensure a high academic standard 5 published articles and/or curated exhibitions are requisite for scholars to become members of the ADA community. Interested scholars may apply for an account here.

Charles Eppley 19.10.2017 CFP for a co-edited special issue of Public Art Dialogue on the topic of 'sonic public art' that some of you may be interested in:
SOUNDSITES: Experiments in Sound and Place Submission Deadline: August 1, 2018 Guest Editors: Charles Eppley & Åsa Stjerna For this issue, the editors invite critical articles, artist essays, and other writings that examine the topic of sonic public art from broad aesthetic, interdisciplinary, or cultural perspectives. Ideal articles will provide unique views on artists, artworks, and practices that employ sonic materials, methods, and concepts to engender encounters with public space. This issue will provide an overview of the fields of sonic art, historical and contemporary, from the theme of place and re-contextualize the aesthetic, discursive, and cultural frames of ‘sound art’ to include individuals, concepts, and practices that have been marginalized by disciplinary methods, narratives, and epistemologies. We are especially interested in articles that identify, analyze, and theorize sonic public art from critical vantages that challenge existing narratives and Western perspectives on art and music. In addition to formal and aesthetic inquiries, authors are encouraged to connect sonic public art to social, political, and economic paradigms that address how the processes of institutionalization, commodification, and mediation have affected public art-making in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Possible topics include: sound sculpture; sound installation; environmental art; performance art; new music; environmental music; Fluxus; Minimalism; acoustic ecology; digital listening; noise pollution; queer sound; gender, race, identity and the cultural politics of listening; sonic protest; sonic weapons; acoustic architecture; accessibility and disability; diasporic sound and global listening cultures; and sonic urbanism (e.g., the sounds of revitalization/gentrification).

José Manuel Ruiz 16.10.2017 REGISTER is a site-specific artistic project that approaches the discontinuity between the organic immediacy of life and the symbolic world. Takes up the process that transforms the perception of “reality” through a series of open source of automatic devices, where the artists –present at all time- are immersed in the task of recollection, classification and fiction.
The step from “reality” to the symbolic world is taken from the automatic machine register – previously programed with a complex algorithm system -, from register’s tasks and the storyteller’s sonorous executed narrations. The intervened and manipulated devices, are shown gutted in front of the viewer.
REGISTER in this way, transforms the gallery in a production laboratory that employs the curious by passer as a random, but fundamental piece for the development of the project.
REGISTER es un proyecto artístico site-specific que aborda la discontinuidad entre la inmediatez orgánica de la vida y el mundo simbólico. Se ocupa del proceso que transforma la percepción de “la realidad” a través de una serie de dispositivos automáticos open source, donde los artistas –presentes en todo momento– están inmersos en una labor de recolección, clasificación y ficción.
El paso de “la realidad” al mundo simbólico se realiza a partir del registro de la máquina automática – previamente programada por un sistema complejo de algoritmos–, de la labor del register y de las narraciones sonoras ejecutadas por el storyteller. Los dispositivos manipulados e intervenidos, aparecen destripados ante el espectador.
REGISTER convierte así la galería en un laboratorio de producción que emplea al viandante curioso como muestra azarosa pero fundamental en el desarrollo del proyecto. https://www.facebook.com/register.art/
