Digital Consciousness Updates
Digital Consciousness now has nine front page artists, all of them past Digital Color Artists of the Month. Their works now appear on the home page of Digital Consciousness.

The image changes each time our home page is refreshed. It is chosen at random from among selected artists who have DC galleries that meet high artistic standards. This process results in exhibition of the artwork of Chen Chi, Elissa Dorfman, Peter H. Eoyang, Teresa Muńoz, Kurt Van Wagner, Joseph Di Sipio, R. W. Firestone, Marijan Gal and Moustafa Al-Hatter.

The email links from the Artist Pages and the galleries now provide the sender a choice of sending email to DC or to the relevent artist. The artist's email address is not disclosed to the sender.

The Artist Pages and the database entry displays have been reformatted so that the name of the artist is the first text to appear, followed shortly by biographical information. This causes search engines to cleanly describe Artist Pages and database displays with the artist's name and information.

Laurence de Sainte-Maréville
Laurence de Sainte-Maréville is the February 2003 Artist of the Month.
Laurence de Sainte Maréville's art is a whole world in itself. Her drawings both remind us of our inner nature and give us new landscapes to explore. Each of her works speaks directly, but each time you return to it, you discover something new.

Laurence writes of her art: "Rather than recreating what I see, I prefer to interpret what I perceive. It is necessary to be at least two in one to make an artistic creation. One who builds and one who sees. Through life difficulties, the flow of my brushes foams on the fine stone of your glances. The box of faces slipping into my pocket, I push life at my measure, and untie simply its cord with a voice... "

L.dSM works are well distributed in both internet and paper media including the French magazine, "L'instant du monde," an exhibition in Sete (south of France) during the festival "Childhood and diving", on the banner for an American scientific site, the La Page Blanche's logo, the Pages Libres, an important French-speaking web-based magazine about literature, the Francopolis' logo, a diet food shop's logo and shop sign -- "Label Forme" situated in the French southern city of Nimes and Librairie and galerie Racine a bookstore situated in Quartier Latin the cultural heart of Paris.
