43 Dodgy statements on Computer art

I love this article.

Some of my favourite Dodgy statements are;

‘The sadness of most art is that it does not know its future. The sadness of computer art is that it does not know its past.’

“Using state-of-the-art technology merely produces state-of-the-technology art.”

“In an ideal world, New Media institutions would employ at least one non-technological artist.”

“You know your amazing new computer art, rich in metaphors and analogies? It’s been done. Years ago. Without a computer.”

“Just as everyone has a novel inside them, many believe they have an artwork. The purpose of a good art school is to seek out these people and stop them.”

“What would be pretentious or nonsensical if one said it oneself does not become more worthy when spoken by a computer-generated avatar.”

“When the first solitary Metro station was built in Paris, where could people travel to? They just admired the station.”

“Computer artist: the unemployable producing the unsaleable for the uninterested.”
