new media art

When you think about it, almost everything that is produced now, is made through a process that is not physical. A movie, a photograph, a chair, a toy, these objects are no long convinced nor processed by the skilled craftsman, instead they are thought up designed on and delivered mind-to-machine to our figurative playground. When we look at art history the pieces artists of each era that are highlighted, are most often chosen for it’s depiction of the times. From studying these pieces of art, we learn about advancements, values, achievements, thoughts, and everyday life at the time. We choose to study these particular artworks to understand society at the time. I feel that although media artists are currently taking the backseat in the current highlights of present day modern art, they are displaying an indicative picture of the way we now process. When I say process I’m encompassing the manner in which ideas, communication, and research is conducted.
