The Search Center
We have updated the DC Search programs. Reach them at http://digitalconsciousness.com/search/search.phtml or from the Search link on the universal menu.

Here is how they work: The DC Internet Publishing Robot stores the virtually continuous public input into DC in a structured database. The data includes new and updated biographical information on the Artist Pages, the provenance of paintings in the galleries, nominations for the Digital Color Award, messages in the bulletin board, notes in the guestbook and product descriptions in the store. The Search Center then offers the user a choice of database searches, each operating on a different part of the database. The database searches are efficient. They are case insensitive and will find material containing the sought-after word or name even if one only inputs a portion of it. The results are returned five items at a time.

If you are searching for information about an artist, consider posting what information you have on the bulletin board. Similarly, an owner of a work of art who is seeking more information about its creator may register the artist with DC (if the artist is not already registered) and upload a photograph of the artwork. This way, the next person who searches for the artist may find these contributions and make contact.

Miguel Cerejido
Miguel Cerejido is the January 2003 Artist of the Month.
Miguel was born in Cuba in 1960. He graduated from the academy of Plastic Arts "San Alejandro" in 1980, and the Superior Institute of Art (I.S.A.) in 1985.

He has worked as a professor at the Superior Institute of Industrial Design, among other art schools in Cuba. He also worked as a specialist at the Centro de Diseño Ambiental (Interior Design) in Havana. He has been an active member of the National Union of writers and artists of Cuba (UNEAC) since 1995.

His explorations in painting have always been dealing with the possible nexuses between music and painting. This theme is present in all his artistic endeavours.

Screen Savers
Dieter Kriesell has offered to produce screensavers for artists joining DC. The screensavers are simple and straightforward. They show pictures on various positions of the screen with some transition effects. He offers this for free, if he gets the pictures in a digital format of not more than 1Mb but reserves the right to finish the service at any time. He may be contacted through the Kontakt link at http://www.kriesell.com/
