High Definition Art: Through the Glass Clearly and Brightly

To add a paper, Login.

The convergence of Hi-Definition media, computer. internet, telephone, and many digital imaging and audio technologies are opening new paths in the landscape of art and learning. They are, in fact both reshaping and rediscovering what it means to be “human”. These technologies have defined and are defining a new language for modern study in the Arts and new, clear, bright avenues for artists to create. As artists and educators we will lead this new wave of human discovery. This paper will be both analytical and speculative, exploring current revolutionary uses of new interactive, Hi-Def media in the Arts and will ask the audience to take a journey with us — we: artists, educators, producers, directors, and dreamers. This journey will not only investigate current possibilities but also consider opportunities for a brave, new world of human engagement and expansion.
