The Times UK does new media

posted at 18:21 GMT by T.Whid in /news/twhid

It’s sort of a weird article that seems to mostly diss new media. Check it out

I’m proud to say that this…

So are artists at the cutting edge of new-media technology? No, says Charlie. One of the problems is that other stuff on the net is so much more mind-blowing. A site such as Google Earth is so much more awesome and thought-provoking than something an arty hacktivist can knock up on her PC.

is something I’ve been saying for years. Except the ‘thought-provoking’ part. That’s bullshit.

Artists don’t need to be at the cutting edge of technology to be relevant. They need to be at the cutting edge of expression. Being steeped in digital culture gives new media artists access to new modes or angles of thinking and feeling. permanent link to this post
