Name: Professor: Course: Date: Theory Meets Practice III: Art and Technology The invention of digital computers has had a very significant impact on artwork because with the use of computers imagery and styles of representing artwork have greatly improved. Digital imagery has become easier with the use of computer thus adding value and taste to art. Computer art has a history that shows the huge transition from traditional art methods to digital methods. Since the introduction of computers around 1950 artists began experimenting with how to use computers to produce pictures. The computer was a new technology and it was appropriate to have it transition traditional art methods to something better. By the year 1970 light was introduced which enabled artists to edit move and juxtapose images on a computer system thus creating flexibility. Computer art has been used to define the creation of images using a computer but software’s to have perfect art created. Art on the other hand comes from human creativity to design and express thoughts visually. In essence technology and art are intertwined. Technology gives artists the ability and tools to create art. Through technology artists can express thoughts and ideas that later sum up to give a piece of art. On the other hand art is the most appropriate aspects that can be used to explore technology and all its aspects (Dietrich 159-160). Work Cited Chadwick Lynn.
