A consolidated and expanded version of the Leonardo Fine Art Science and Technology (FAST) Database and Archive project.
The Leonardo Almanac is an invaluable one-stop resource for those who are working at the intersection of the arts, sciences, and technology. Included are profiles of organizations and individuals active in the related fields. The organizations directory alone contains more than 500 entries for artist-in-residence, grant and fellowship, sound and music, computer arts, video, and multimedia programs. In addition there is an artists' words on works archive, a speakers network, a section with bibliographies on everything from fractals to virtual reality to CD-ROM and multimedia, and a calendar listing of events, competition, and funding deadlines. The Leonardo Almanac is a consolidated and expanded version of the Leonardo Fine Art Science and Technology (FAST) Database and Archive project. It covers a wide range of topics including computer graphics and animation, holography, robotics, telecommunications and art, video, computer literature, applications of artificial intelligence to the arts, applications of computers to music, and new materials on the arts. The in-depth profiles, examples of artists' works, detailed programs for educational institutions and research facilities, funding agencies, and artist-in-resident programs make this a critical work-in-hand for helping people connect with the practitioners, institutions, and programs that can best meet the needs of their specific circumstances.
