I had an interesting conversation with Diana the other day. She went out of her element to get a little bit more inspiration and decided to check out the local library. The first thought that struck her (and definitely me too) was that there were actually libraries still available. Some people might think these paper packed buildings are long gone, thanks to the ebooks that are making such a huge impact in our world these days. We continued to talk about the silence and the concentration that embraced her and pretty much everyone else in the library. There’s no doubt the world has become full of technology art interference, if you know what I mean.
When I say technology art, I mean the way technology has completely reinvented art itself. I don’t think there’s many pieces of famous art left that haven’t been digitized and put onto the Internet. It’s everywhere and in ever higher resolution. It’s in everything from paintings to sculptures. With a higher and higher pixel ratio, the images that we are able to pull up of our favorite piece of art, or something else that we search for, are sometimes more in depth than we would ever see in real life. Usually the art in question is hiding behind a sheet of shatterproof glass or something, which would make it impossible to really look at in detail.
This infusion of technology into our society spawned a project that Leo Caillard decided to undertake. It aims to depict the world with regards to technology art, or rather how technology will leave an unmistakably important mark on both our lives as well as our culture. The project called “Art Game” is a playful look at how technology art is spreading its arms around us and embracing every facet of our imagination. Just like technology, art will never stay the same.
