To go along with my post last week about Rafaël Rozendaal who uses the internet as his canvas this is a video explaining how the ability to view art on the internet is completely different experience than viewing art in person. The point of this video is to get people thinking if they can have an “art experience” like you can at the museum or gallery in front of your computer screen.
My opinion is No, it is impossible to have the same experience on your laptop as you do at an in person visit to the gallery. Browsing the internet and viewing art work that way is a much too casual of an experience, and when comparing it to an in person gallery visit it doesn’t even compare. Photos of artwork can not capture the essence of a painting, drawing, sculpture or what have you. However, if you are viewing a digital work, it may be a similar experience to that of a gallery, or at least in the way of having the same viewing experience.
