My gif to you~
To me, a lot of our discussion has revolved around whether or not new digital media is art. Does it have that essence to it that makes traditional art moving and purposeful and, well, art? Can work made through digital means?
I don’t know about you, but the answer to that for me, is yes.
Of course. Why not??? Art is about intention (even if the intention is to subvert intention–Here’s lookin’ at you Dada >.>) and appreciation and, above all else, creation–re-imagination and remixing included (I mean, look at collage and photomontage, at Rauschenberg’s combines~ Duchamp’s Fountain???).
Art is what we make of it.
It can be a gif or a (beloved) meme.
Again, why not???
