Changes In Art Brought By Technology

Technology has influenced almost every industry and art is one of them. There are many innovations that influenced how artists made art such as portable paint tubes and silkscreen painting. These new methods give artists new methods by which they can show their creativeness. For several decades, art and technology influences one another in many ways. The effect of technology can be seen in canvas art and many other forms such as the examples below.

Rising Color space was an abstract work created at the walls of the Berlin gallery. The art may seem unimpressive at first but it changes with time. The painting looks different the following day because of Vert walker, a robot with ability to climb walls and equipped with paint pen. It continues painting with the help of a software program that instructs the robot to follow the programmed pattern. The artists behind Vert walker are Michael Haas and Julian Adenauer. The robot uses eight different colors and paints for three hours before changing the battery.

Laser is employed by Eric Standley to create stained glass windows that are actually made of paper. He draws the intricate design and uses laser to cut the shapes in a meticulous manner. The shapes are then layered to create 3D versions of his original design. A single window can have at least a hundred sheets cut using laser technology.

Digital art is basically dominated by lasers and one of popular exhibits is called Assemblance which was held in London. Visitors create their own floor drawings whenever they move around smoke and laser beams. People working alone found out that their structures are easily broken as soon as they bumped into it but those who work as a team creates sophisticated light structures that are more resilient.

Dmitry Morozov, a Russian artist, created a device that can show pollution in a beautiful way but the main goal of the art is to raise awareness regarding pollution. The device comes with a plastic nose and sensors that can calculate the amount of dust and pollutants such as methane, carbon monoxide and formaldehyde. The data gathered by the sensors is made into shapes and colors resulting to art caused by pollution. The result can be transferred into canvas art if desired and shows that the dirtier the air, the image result is also brighter.
