DENISA KERA featured: ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART invites SCHOLARS to join
Denisa Kera is a philosopher and designer based in Singapore and Prague
working on open science and citizen science issues. She is involved in
various open hardware projects with emphasis on supporting research
infrastructure in the Global South.
She uses prototypes as critical probes and tools for mobilization,
deliberation, reflection and public participation in R&D. Her
ethnographic work on various community labs and alternative R&D
structures (Hackerspaces, Fablabs, DIYbio) is combined with genealogical
interest in the origins of science in the 16th century mechanical arts
and early visions of Academy of Sciences.
She has extensive experience as a curator of exhibitions and projects
related to art, technology and science, and previous career in internet
start-ups and journalism. Currently she works as an Assistant Professor
at the National University of Singapore, where she is also Asia Research

COLLABORATIVE ANALYSIS AND PROACTIVE KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER
With the support of two large international grants, the archive has
been transferred into a Web 2.0 environment. The aim is to provide
community features and user-oriented applications to enable a collective
scientific exchange between artists, researchers, engineers and the
public to foster interdisciplinary and global collaborative analysis and
a proactive process of knowledge transfer.
Community features allow active exchange of professional information
with peers. The new Light box tool facilitates the examination and
comparison of various image phenomena for teaching and research
ADA: THOUSANDS OF ARTWORKS

Database of Virtual Art) has grown to be the most important online
archive for digital art. In cooperation with established media artists,
researchers and institutions it has been documenting the rapidly
evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a
decade and contains today a selection of thousands of artworks at the
intersection of art, science and technology.
