Merging Art and Digital Media for a Healthy Planet
The 2008 Common Ground International Touring Collection, with original works of digital art selected from over 1,000 artists in over 40 countries will premier in Beijing at the Huan Tie Art Museum on Sunday.
“Earth is our common ground. We may be divided by borders, language and cultural identity, but we still share the same water, the same air, the same plants, and the same common ground that sustains, protects and feeds us all on this planet,” said Larry Richard, the founder of Common Ground, an art platform which intends to focus global attention for environmental awareness through a unique multi-culture collection of digital art.
An international community of artists uses the expressive language they know best, visual art and design, to demonstrate their concern for the fate of the earth.

Collecting Digital Prints
A Guide To Digital Print Provenance
by Max Eternity
Within the fine art field of digital print collecting there exist a large vacuum. It is the great empty space that concerns the nomenclature of digital print provenance. Which is to say, that beyond identifying digital prints with the commonly used, and very broad terms of Gicleè and/or Inkjet, terms which only indicate the use of digital hardware and not virtual plate originality and/or issuing protocol, there has yet to take root a simple, yet uniform classification and identification system that provides private and institutional collectors the essential hallmarks of provenance for each and every digital print that has been or is to be created. This is a problem, a real problem. And yet, the reality is that digital prints, like cell phones, laptops and the Internet, are nothing more than a mirror reflection of today’s increasingly, digital world. In short, digital prints are the manifest confluence of artistic ingenuity and current, medium availability. They represent an new, exciting commercially viable, fine art form that continues to grow each and every day. Digital prints are a natural evolution of print potentiality; reflecting the influence of the digital aesthetic in everyday life. View and download the “Collecting Digital Prints” white paper here.

TADAE (pronounced: Today) is an acronym, which stands for Traditional And Digital Artist Engineer. It is a term coined by Max Eternity, an American polymath. This terminology is being put forth to be used when describing a creative, meme subset of individuals who informally embody a recent proliferation of innovative intellectualist, of which many are successfully blurring and blending the centuries old, established line(s) between what would typically define (and separate) artist from engineer. This culmination represent a manifestation having largely been brought on as a consequence of newer developments and expanding capabilities in emerging applications derived primarily from the digital realm.
