Maeda: Technology and Art

Detail from Jahn Maeda, Human 2.0, 2007

How is technology changing art? Rhode Island School of Design president John Maeda answers:

I think that computers and the advancedness of computers hasn't changed art very much. It's enabled more to happen. Again, that counts a bit more. Better resolution, longer lengths, more color variety, but all in all it's the same thing. It's what experience can I deliver to you that is provocative, that can change how you think. How can I, the art piece, change your relationship -- not to me, but to something else or to the world? That question has nothing to do with technology at all.
