Deep Dreaming is conceived in two parts.
Deep Dreaming (histories): a curated show of media artists, pioneers from the art/sciences that have wrought new visions of art through algorithmic methods.
Deep Dreaming (futures): a call for art work submissions that address Deep Dreaming, (re)imagining the future technology-based artistic practices.
The artworks need to be installed by the artist and artists can join a community of others to ‘unpack’ their work in the Deep Dreaming symposium.

Selections will be made by a panel of digital art experts according to the following criteria:
All contributors to SIGGRAPH Asia Annual Conferences are now required to use ACM's rights management system to grant rights to publish accepted content rather than through the SIGGRAPH Asia Submission System. Essentially, submission tracking, jury review, and acceptance remain the same, but now the rights management is through ACM, the parent organization of SIGGRAPH Asia.
You will be asked to complete an ACM rights management form, which includes permission to record and distribute the audio and video of your recorded presentation through official channels of ACM/SIGGRAPH Asia. For most content types, this will be a Permission and Release form, which allows authors to retain copyright.
More Information on these options (the FAQ is particularly useful)
As a contributor to an ACM-sponsored event, the following expectations apply to you, should your content be accepted for presentation:
Once your contribution is accepted, you will receive a link via email to the appropriate form for your contribution.
Artists will receive acceptance and rejection notices via email. Detailed information and instructions will then be sent to artists along with the acceptance letter. You must promptly complete and return the following:
Please see the Recognition Benefits for a summary of what you will receive if your work and/or proposal are accepted by SIGGRAPH Asia 2019.
Presenters are expected to cover their own travel costs, which are not covered by SIGGRAPH Asia 2019. You can apply for a 100% discount per accepted submission via the submission system. If additional contributors need to access the Art Gallery for presentation purposes, they can request for an experience passes that allows you to enter the Art Gallery area. Please email us via the following email; firstname.lastname@example.org.
All work selected for the SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery will also be documented in the SIGGRAPH website and ACM Digital Library.
In general, accepted artists are responsible for bringing or shipping their work to SIGGRAPH Asia in Brisbane, Australia. Artists are also responsible for return shipping after the conference.
We will work closely with you to ensure proper and effective installation of your work. You must send exhibition-ready work. Prints must be framed and ready to hang, three-dimensional works must be assembled and ready for display, installation works must be complete with detailed set-up instructions and diagrams, etc. Exhibition installation will be accomplished by professionals, although complex works will need your individual participation, so you should plan to arrive early to assist with installation.
Note: If your work arrives at the convention center, and it is not as depicted in your submission or is not ready for installation, we reserve the right to exclude it from the exhibition.
You will be able to update your basic submission information so that it can be included in the conference program and website. This information needs to be finalized two weeks after acceptance. If you wish to attend SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 in Brisbane, Australia, registration and travel costs are at your own expense.
Artwork Submission Process Upon Acceptance At The Conference Expanded Audience
If your work does not obviously fit into one of these categories, please choose the one that seems most appropriate. Your work will not be rejected because it does not conform to one of these categories.
Please submit it to Emerging Technologies.
The SIGGRAPH Asia 2019 Art Gallery welcomes proposals for all kinds of electronically mediated performances. However, we will not be able to present all deserving projects due to limitations in availability of suitable venues.
Your performance should be no longer than one hour in length, and you should be able to repeat the performance at least twice during the conference.
You will be responsible for all set-up and tear-down (we will provide volunteers to help). You are also responsible for supplying your own equipment. If you have a performance that does not fit well into these parameters, please contact the Art Gallery Chair and Co-Chair to discuss possible solutions. There may be other opportunities for you at SIGGRAPH Asia.
For performances, installations, and any interactive art that changes over time, you should submit a digital video that shows the evolution of the work, in addition to still images for documentation.
Yes, if there is a significant use of creative digital techniques to alter the video, if the piece incorporates computer animation, or if it expands on aesthetic issues described in the Art Gallery Call for Participation.
Yes, sculptures that are interactive, robotic, electronic, or part of an installation are encouraged. Works that utilize rapid prototyping, that make use of embedded systems, or combine traditional media with digital systems are also welcome.

All work must be submitted via the SIGGRAPH Asia Art Gallery Online Submission Form. Do not send printed proposals or slides in physical form through the mail.
There is no limit. Submit as many as you like. But you must complete and submit a separate submission form for each work, unless your work is a series (see below).
You should submit all pieces of the series under the same submission form. Be aware that if you specify that the pieces can NOT be split up, the jury will have to agree on all of the works in the series, so the work may be harder to accept. If your series does not hold together without each of the component parts, make sure you check "Please do not split up." Do not use this category to submit multiple artworks unless they are a series.
