Humans, animals, insects, trees, plants, oceans, and air -- indeed, all that 
we see, taste, smell, touch, and breathe, contain molecular processes of 
physical transformation; a dynamic dance of change.  This magic of 
transition, called alchemy by our earliest scientists, became the science of 
chemistry. It describes both the physical structure and characteristic 
actions of matter. It allows for all organic and inorganic change to take 
place -- brain synapses to fire, oxygen to be formed from carbon dioxide and 
water during photosynthesis; the transformation of gases in our solar 
system; along with the ability of proteins to turn our genes on/off. If you 
extend your imagination beyond the epithelial surface of your body, or into 
the ether that carries cosmic dust, or even into your kitchen, chemistry can 
inspire wonder. Like a fabulous menu of concocted primordial soups, when 
exposed to changes in temperature, pressure, or speed, chemistry can create 
a stick of dynamite or a magnificent souffle!

For this exhibition, we celebrate the International Year of Chemistry by 
inviting artists and scientists to show us their vision of this deeply 
fundamental, magical enabler of life called chemistry.

ASCI was one of the first organizations in the world to recognize the 
digital print as a valid fine art medium in 1998 by organizing an afternoon 
panel discussion, "Collectibility & the Digital Print."  The event was held 
in The Great Hall at Cooper Union, New York City, in conjunction with ASCI's 
first international digital print competition/exhibition.
