the printing press in the 14th century,
and photography in the 19th century

had a revolutionary impact on the development of modern society and culture,

today we are in the middle of a new media revolution

- the shift of all culture to computer-mediated forms of production, distribution, and communication

The process of art making

has finally caught up with modern times.

Art has become synchronized with the rest of modern society,

where everything from objects to people’s identities are assembled from ready-made parts.

... true art lies in the “mix”.

Lev Manovich, 2001
