If we were to look back on years of art history, the evidence is there to show that artists have always been looking for new art forms and unconventional mediums to express their art. Given that, as millennials we are much more accepting of new and unique forms of art, the initial shock and incomprehensiveness is non-existent when we refer to art and technology. In some ways, it has become a norm. Some may even question whenever an artist does not attempt to incorporate some sort of digital element in their work.
Digital Scenography, the perfect combination of art and technology
In the past decade, art and technology have inevitably been walking hand in hand, but scenography is a prime example of an art form that has fully embraced technology. Hence why it has led to the new age of ‘digital scenography’.
The ‘digital’ side of scenography is able to transform the way art and technology is initially perceived, by appealing to a much wider audience, at a bigger scale of projects. It allows artists to excel in a whole new area, full of opportunities to present, appraise and exhibit to millions of individuals. It is essentially seen as a contemporary way which fulfils artistic needs to push barriers of creation and imagination. Better expressed by the owner of Anaitte, who defines digital scenography as “a total work of art with the integration of the digital medium”.
It does not stop there. There are multiple other ways in which digital scenography is ever evolving, and by doing so - changing the art world as we know it.
It has completely changed the pathway for artists and the way they can create and share their art, with the help of both art and technology combining forces. It can provide new experiences, newly developed skills, and newly adapted points of view. It has more popularly given a new and exciting perspective in staging variety of public performances, where rooms can immerse in colours, displaying digital projections that dance over walls, floors, and seating, indulging you in an artistic experience like no other.
Impacts of technology on digital scenography
Overall, the impact of technology is positive for many different aspects in our lives. It connects us in a fast and progressive way, providing us with limitless opportunities. However, when we speak about art and technology, there are certain aspects that need to be addressed.
For example, how the internet allows the impacts of art to be extended far beyond a one-time performance. How art and technology are helping organisations reach more diverse communities, even on a global scale at times, and most importantly, how it drives excitement in the artist when challenged to meet new demands and expectations.
Thanks to art and technology, this new and innovative form of art will transform the way ordinary people view it, as it will enrich artistic emotions and experiences. It can bring us closer to understanding the vision of the artist on a rather grand and spectacular scale.
