We all know that the smartphone is changing the way nearly everyone interacts with each other, buys things, and gets information. But what about how we make art? It seems clear to me that a new generation of mobile artists is about emerge, and this article from the Guardian in the UK is on it.
Whether the technology is augmented reality (as Adam Weinart wrote about last week) or an Oculus Rift, or Google glass, it really doesn’t matter. The exciting thing will be to sit back and watch what happens. Though some may hate the idea, I can easily imagine a 3-D virtual visit to an art museum. And no, I don’t think it will spell the end of musuems. I think it will only enhance the experience of the real thing.
