Although this post does not relate to what we are covering in class, i found it very interesting and wanted to share it with you all. It also played in to the relation from Sabrina Kassab’s post of why are artists turning to interactive media and the question Proffesor Ryan arose when she said “Must art only live in the museum or gallery? Must art be defined by the parameters of old media?” This got me thinking, only a certain type of people will visit museums while almost everyone will look at billboards when driving their car. Being in graphic design, the use of advertisement through billboards is essential. Communicating your art work via billboard is genius! not only do you reach your normal subjects that would normally attend a museum but your also outreaching to a broader community. “Art intersects with commerce often, though usually in ways more subtle,” Williams said. The idea then causes me to question digital art and how it can become more interactive outside of a museum or gallery setting. Any ideas?
