Forging New Territory
Technology plays such an instrumental role in the delivery of content to the masses today. It provides artists with an accessible showcase for presenting their work directly to millions of viewers through various social mediums on multiple platforms. It also offers them the opportunity to develop and execute their concepts regarding immersive artistic experiences without filtering their visions through a third party. They can transfer their ideas straight from their computers to the viewers and collectors. No art dealers or gallerists are required.
While traditional art forms like painting and printmaking will always retain their rightful places in the creative world, digital art has quickly gained unstoppable momentum as the most intriguing new phenomenon in the art industry.
The new mediums of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and LiDAR scanning can transform and enrich human endeavors while launching artists out onto innovative avenues for fresh expression.
Digital artists, who are already capable of producing creative work that is far beyond even their own wildest imaginings, recognize that their mastery of these immersive technologies has yet to be fully actualized.
The disadvantage in creating digital artwork is that it can be so easily duplicated. Serious artists who want to create truly unique digital pieces have found the blockchain to be an effective method for addressing this issue. The blockchain, or distributed ledger technology, produces the necessary scarcity and rightful ownership of the IP (Intellectual Property) by linking it back to the time and date of creation by a specific artist.
An artist adding their artwork to a blockchain is essentially stamping it with a unique unit of data that identifies it as an NFT (Non-fungible token). NFT’s make it possible for artists to determine how and what they sell, engendering greater creative flexibility for the artist, and allowing artistic freedom to truly ring, loud and clear.
Long live creativity!
