Additional Information

What Is Digital Art?

In today’s society, everything is digital and computerized. We check our email, read the newspaper online, and talk and/or text each other on our cell phones. We can even take pictures or make videos with our phones in this day and age. Now art has gone digital.

So what is digital art?

Digital art can be defined as anything of a visual nature that artists created with the aid of a computer. It is intimately linked to science and technology, which are fundamental to its creation and physical substance. Art is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture. It is subjective and stimulating and seeks to enlighten and entertain.

Digital art is like any other art. It is created using a computer rather than more traditional art tools.

Websites may showcase forms of digital art such as animations and drawings or paintings posted to the site. Synthesized music is also considered a digital art form because technically it is only possible through digital technology. Drawings, interactive installations, screenshots, digital prints on canvas, and installation views of photographs are all considered forms of digital art.

The art industry is making a shift towards the digital, revolutionising the way that one can create, buy, and sell art. Whether it be through social media, physical or online events and platforms, or new media like AI and VR, we are experiencing an art revolution.

 

In the wake of Covid-19 restrictions, lockdowns, and prolonged quarantines, the art world has shifted online. There is a digital art revolution taking place, especially through the creation, buying, and selling of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). These are one-of-a-kind pieces of art situated on the blockchain that are bought and sold mainly via Ethereum. The rise of NFTs allows digital commodities like music and visual art to be sold as an ‘original,’ increasing value and reflecting the way the traditional art market has operated for centuries. 

VR Art

Virtual reality, and the eventual synthesis of it with our everyday lives, seems to be becoming an inevitability, considering Mark Zuckerberg’s rebranding of Facebook’s to Meta and its consequent introduction of the “metaverse.” VR is a familiar medium already in the digital art world, along with AR and artificial intelligence (AI). Notably, because of VR technology, art exhibiting has become more accessible in a world where people must keep their distance. 

Just like Zuckerberg’s metaverse, the ability to attend an art exhibition from home is now a reality. For example, the 2021 Taiwan Creative Contest Fest was a curation of a “Metaverse Playground,” that showcased fifteen immersive exhibitions for visitors who attended the fest. However, this event was accompanied by an online exhibition built in GOXR by XRSPACE for those unable to attend person. 

Additionally, artists and observers can also create and destroy works through a VR platform with entirely virtual tools. Forgetter is a video game on Steam that, among other things, allows users to destroy the Chinese contemporary art collection of Sylvain and Dominique Lévy, entitled the dslcollection. In a conversation with Ocula Magazine, the leading APAC contemporary art platform, Sylvain stated, “During the pandemic, the art world moved online, but many of our experiences were unsatisfactory, even boring. Who are the people who manage the screen the best? People who make video games. It’s a business model that functions, and it has a community of 1.5 billion people.” 

Much like VIVE Arts’ VR platform, Forgetter is changing the way that people interact with art, namely, moving online but in a much more intimate way, demonstrating the potential of the new technology making its way into the art world. VR is securing its place in the art world through its ability to perceive, create, and destroy.
