Ylem has been active in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1982 and is now an international association with over 200 members. The organization sponsors numerous events and exhibits, publishes a monthly newsletter, and an annual membership Directory. Ylem members include artists who work with video, ionized gases, computers, lasers, holograms, robotics, and other non-traditional media. It also includes artists who use traditional media but who are inspired by the images, structures, and growth geometries of crystals, electromagnetic phenomena, biological self-replication, and fractals.
Ylem’s feature annual publication is the ARTISTS USING SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY DIRECTORY. This is a directory of over two hundred creative artists who are working in diverse contemporary and electronic media, including video, neon, hi-tech sculpture, performance art, cosmic oriented painting, and computer graphics. The directory brings artists into direct contact with curators, art collectors, gallery owners, and educators.
