I was leading an online ceminar yesterday at NCAD, this is what i wanted us to discouse:
New Media Artist as Richie Budd – commercial flops or avant-garde?
So for this online discussion I hope Richie Budd, his work and how he promote himself, can be a platform to discuss:
Is the new media artist (what ever that is) opening up and including new people in the art scene, making it easier to share ideas and creating a platform for innovation?
Or is the demarcating of the internet playing with the throught… is it increasing the line between the professionals and the amateur artist? Are these technologies in a bad way, impacting on the way in which artists are making work?
