Tuesday August 21st
Back in my 6yr old days (still my favourite year of living) I used to dream of living in the houses in all my story books. They were all beautifully drawn and looked magical and surreal.
I now have an iPhone and all the AMAZING technology that comes with it so I turned my Mom's house into a story book house with the sketch setting on the camera....
What does everyone think about the implications for art when you can create a sketch with the push of a button?
I aim to look at the glass half full (or even better see the glass overflowing with tea melting the block of dark chocolate next to it). What wonderful talent we have in this world. Wether is someone who knows how to turn actual paint into a masterpiece or someone who knows how to make a camera lens filter like paint or a pencil, or pastel....
My mum definitely has interior decorating talent!
I do believe, and love, the notion that computers will never be able to replicate the exact adventures of the neural impulses in our minds, only we can think the way we do. So maybe the magic isn't how we create the art, it's what we do with it. The magic is in the intention/idea of the art. Thoughts?
