Obviously, over the past two decades, we are experiencing one of the fundamental changes. If we consider the prospects of using technology to create new forms of art, then the progress in computer technologies offers much more opportunities even in comparison with photography or cinema. An interesting aspect of the new perspectives is that if in the process of photographing it is difficult to predict many nuances of the very result of creativity, then when using computer technologies there is a sufficiently large technological gap that must be overcome at the beginning of the creative process. This is confirmed by the fact that many people who are able to become network artists, using new technologies in their creative work, traditionally shy away from technical education and do not yet reach the level of technical competence necessary to realize their own artistic potential through new technical capabilities. A certain number of new creative opportunities can be gleaned from this rapidly developing region, but first it is necessary to spend enough effort to educate and support artists seeking to learn new things. We hope that the artist’s skills will be properly reflected in his work.
As a result of the technical revolution, cardinal changes took place in all spheres of human activity, including art. New technologies had an impact on the artistic environment and as a result a new phenomenon of art emerged – digital arts.
Under the digital arts we mean such kinds of artistic activity, the conceptual and productive base of which is determined by the digital environment. Emerging neoplasm is actively discussed by specialists of a wide range of areas related to art, culture, science, and technology. The emergence of digital arts entailed the emergence of new artistic genres and forms. Such areas as, for example, three-dimensional animation, virtual reality, interactive systems, and the internet have discovered unprecedentedly wide creative possibilities.
Using the language of digital culture, the emergence of digital arts immediately opposed all the rest of the art – the traditional one, which is referred to as digital analogue. Digital art is an open system, therefore it develops in the context of the whole art and actively interacts with analog art, influencing it. So, first of all, the most traditional kinds of fine arts – painting, graphics, sculpture – were influenced by digital arts.
Obviously, over the past two decades, we are experiencing one of the fundamental changes. If we consider the prospects of using technology to create new forms of art, then the progress in computer technologies offers much more opportunities even in comparison with photography or cinema.
