Most contemporary artworks utilise technology, whether it be the new capabilities of computer software or the developed tools that enable these works. For example, you wouldn’t find a digital work in the 17th century as painting and drawing were the predominant works. Therefore, technological advancement has had an impact on the way we express our ideas and how the audience interprets the works. It is important then to identify that all materials and mediums have a cultural currency.
Since our culture is heavily immersed in technology I wanted to produce an artwork using more traditional methods as you don’t see a lot of it these days. I have decided to approach this assessment with the idea of doing a collection of drawings or paintings. I don’t know what it will be of yet, but I am just going to see where my experimentation takes me.
