Digital Art: print
ZT Tosha’s digital art examines some the changes that digital technology has wrought upon conceptions of space, time and culture, and how ‘new media art’ has historically reflected upon these.
At work we are surrounded by technology, whether in offices or in supermarkets and factories, where almost every aspect of planning, design, marketing, production and distribution is monitored or controlled digitally. Galleries and museums are far from exempt from the effects of these technological transformations. Indeed, it might be suggested that museums and galleries are profoundly affected and that the increasing ubiquity of systems of information manipulation and communication presents particular challenges to the art gallery as an institution.
At one level these challenges are practical: how to take advantage of the new means of dissemination and communication these technologies make possible; how to compete as a medium for cultural practice in an increasingly media-saturated world; how to engage with new artistic practices made possible by such technologies, many of which present their own particular challenges in terms of acquisition, curation and interpretation.
