For this week (6) of BCM112 we discussed craft making and digital transformation. One of the best examples we were shown was ‘glitch art’. Which is basically art or a physical creation that looks like it’s a badly loaded photo on Google Images.
And they look freakin’ awesome. Although they start to make my head hurt if I look at them too long.
But then I came across this article from the Guardian, by Jonathan Jones, that completely condemns the recreation of Rembrandt’s art style through a 3D computer program.
The piece in question
Now to me, the creation of a fairly amazing piece of art through A 3D printer is not, “…a horrible, tasteless, insensitive and soulless travesty of all that is creative in human nature.” (Jones).
But rather an amazing example of how far digital art has come and much further it can still go. And those that believe that this is not art, will be left to perish in the forgotten past.
