• The whole quote goes: "Technology adds nothing to art. Two thousand years ago, I could tell you a story, and at any point during the story I could stop, and ask, Now do you want the hero to be kidnapped, or not? But that would, of course, have ruined the story. Part of the experience of being entertained is sitting back and plugging into someone else's vision."
  • Art doesn't need to be about anything. It is the artist's representation of his view or his viewpoint on anything or everything. Technology has opened another layer of expression. Good question.
  • I absolutely DO NOT agree! While its true we could use last nights ashes or the cooled charcoal from its fire to draw or paint something, or walk down to rivers-bed to sketch in wet sand, I am, like so many of we Artist's, especially we professionals, thrilled we have so many literal options with which to create! I'm overjoyed that I don't have to grind my own paints. I laugh out loud, holding my sides, I didn't have to go hunt down that sable or that rabbit or that squirrel, having then to butcher it for its fur, and began that slow and very exacting process of making quality paint brushes! I am just beside myself I didn't have to grow the linen or cotton, waiting for its maturity, chopping it down, cleaning it, then pressing it to make my own paper. I get all giggly I don't have to make water-tight baskets (of various sizes) to collect 'clear' rain from last night either. Equally I am delirious that I don't have to go down to the river, with those hand-made baskets, and collect water and then have to figure out a way to strain it! Frankly, I can -- laughing all the way -- mosey over to that sink in my studio -- that wooden room that I didn't build by myself -- and turn on that faucet, which I didn't install or have to plumb either! Technology not add anything to Art? Is this a trick question?
