The Impact of Technology on Creativity

Posted on

The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.

John Lasseter (Former chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar and Disneytoon Studio)

Digitally created music, Photoshop enhanced images, computer generated graphic design, book publishing software – all examples of technology’s impact on the arts and creativity.

Technology has opened a whole new world of expression, giving the artist the means to do what was impossible to do just 20 years ago.

In addition to the creative side of the arts, technology has given the artist a global audience. Sharing images, performances, words, music and thoughts on a worldwide level has never been easier. 

I can’t wait to see the impact on creative expression of such things at net art, digital installation art and virtual reality.
