7 Ways Technology is Changing How Art is Made

Who would have heard of Andy Warhol without silkscreen printing? The truth is that technology has been providing artists with new ways to express themselves for a very long time. Still, over the past few decades, art and tech have become more intertwined than ever before, whether it’s through providing new ways to mix different types of media, allowing more human interaction or simply making the process of creating it easier. Case in point is a show titled “Digital Revolution” that opened earlier this summer in London’s Barbican Centre. The exhibit, which runs through mid-September, includes a “Digital Archaeology” section which pays homage to gadgets and games that not that long ago dazzled us with their innovation. Here are seven examples, some from “Digital Revolution," of how technology is reshaping what art is and how it’s produced: Paint or Paint App? Value of Creating Digital Vs. Traditional Art.

What the F**k is Digital Art

A lesson in History. Many people think that digital art appeared sometime in the last 5 years, or at the earliest sometime with Web 2.0, they are not wrong. The vast majority of artists started creating digital art in the last decade or so when one no longer needed specialised knowledge or training to do stuff on computers, think David Hockney making iPad drawings – technically it is digital art, yet it would be a stretch to call him a digital artists.

The majority of artists did start experimenting with digital only with the advance of Web 2.0 however the history of digital art starts long before that in 1949’s and I will trace it here through milestones, and as i do keep in mind that anything digital is essence a binary code consisting of 1 and 0, and in its essence its all math.
