The Internet has completely changed the face of the art world, from how art is made, to how it’s seen, and even how it functions. In your opinion, do you think art, not necessarily in your own work but in general, has been enriched because of the Internet, or has it lost something?
As for each evolution, whatever it is, it brings various consequences, good and bad. The phenomenon of the Internet, with its richness, and poverty, changes our behavior, and cannot leave us without certain thoughts. It encourages us to look at what is happening, and to express our own ideas. It’s necessary. The way art is seen or how it functions is almost inevitable. The Internet is such an accessible tool that enables us to do so many things. I remain very curious about how things will evolve or change in the future.
Photo Opportunities has been gaining worldwide exposure and a lot of praise. What has this experience been like for you as an artist, and what are you looking forward to?
The source of the images in Photo Opportunities is the Internet. It is interesting to see that these images have come full circle, back to where they come from. The digital evolution over the past 10 years has brought us to a modification of our behavior. I have to admit that I swing between worry and fascination for this phenomenon, and I am so excited to explore further.
