How is technology changing innovation and creativity in the arts? That’s the topic for State of the Arts at the Dallas Museum of Art Thursday night. KERA’s Jeff Whittington will host the conversation. He recently spoke with artist Alison Jardine, one of panelists, about her project on Twitter – collaborating with hundreds of others to manipulate an image of one of her artworks.
“I sent out an image of one of my oil paintings and asked people to capture it and send it back to me over Twitter,” Jardine says. “I then selected an image based on my aesthetic preference as the fittest to survive to the next round.”
Jardine also talked about the increasing presence of digital technology in the practice of art.
“It’s the first time that the tools artists use and the way the artwork is viewed or experienced is the same medium – the same device…digital technologies are the paint, the canvas, the wall, the gallery all rolled into one.”
Explore more of Jardine’s artwork; hear from Dale Carman, the founder of animation and film studio ReelFX; and learn from Dan Kohl how the Perot Museum of Nature and Science is using technology to innovate the museum industry tonight at 7 at the Dallas Museum of Art.
