With growing efforts to generate artificial intelligence programs capable of creativity, more art being born out of computer programs, and virtual realities that merge with physical ones, the once colossal gap between technology and artistic creation is now close to nonexistent.
This blog will feature the work of artists and scholars whose common objective is to question, challenge and respond to the global digital transition. It will mine the world of software-based and digital-born art for innovations, challenges, and, ultimately, a better understanding of how technology continues to both generate and inhibit new methods of artistic creation.
Philippe Riss-Schmidt, the curator of this past Venice Biennale's pavilion dedicated to art that engages with technology, said about the movement: "This is not about digital art, but about art in the digital age. Welcome to the e-renaissance."
