It is no surprise that many talented artists have taken advantage of the possibilities of computer technology in their creative work.
With advancements in technology, many new as well as veteran artists are discovering what the latest computer technologies and the World Wide Web can do for them and for their art. Indeed, a whole new collection of artists have arisen whose primary influence is modern technology and whose work is to be found on the Internet. Much of the work they produce is wonderful and very often quite bizarre. When exploring the many Web-based art sites, it becomes obvious that these artists have striven to take their work to the limit, both technologically as well as conceptually. Indeed, this is quite an understatement in both instances!
The other advantage that modern technology conveys on the multimedia artist is the possibility to acquaint themselves with the vast amount of Web-based work of their fellow cybernetic artisans. Therefore, they can not only display their own work to a large audience, but they can also take part in a larger community of artists from whom they can learn and draw inspiration. While many may still prefer to work in old-fashioned ways, the often-solitary insulation of the artist need no longer necessarily be an unavoidable fact of artistic life.
So, if you are in for a new-age treat and want to see what the world’s creative spirits are seeking to create on the Internet, you require only an Internet connection, some hard-core software to handle the images and also a good deal of patience while they down-load! But, it is well worth the effort.
