Is Technology Changing the Face of Art?

20th July 2018

Art has been around since the cave-men, but for something that has existed almost as long as humans have, it has evolved at a significantly slower rate. The art world has finally started making use of all of the incredible technology around us, but unfortunately technology and art still aren’t considered synonymous. Modern art, for many, is still veiled with vague and incomprehensible symbolism, this has made it inaccessible for a lot of people. Current trends suggest that most people are moving away from traditional art and are looking for somewhere else to go. A few artists have tapped into this transitional form of modern art, and are making huge leaps in connecting a new generation of people with art.

David Hart is one of these artists. He has gone to great lengths to make sure his art is able to be viewed and interacted with on every platform. Social media is just the beginning. Where most artists would only post images of their art, David has taken it a step further and has crossed film and photography with art. He films his entire process and displays it across media platforms. He is a self-taught photographer, videographer, and editor. Everything that is released on his website and social media accounts was made by him. He believes that he needs to be a part of the entire creative process in order to present art that is fully an expression of himself. He plans to delve further into the world of technology and art, incorporating more digital art in his already impressive portfolio. He hopes to engage people with art that that can be enjoyed by everyone. Modern Australian art can seem intimidating for a lot of people, but David does everything he can to help everyone make their own connection with art.
