Laser Cat on Video: this century’s answer to the Shock of the New?
A giant cat that curates artworks and beams them out of of its eyes. Is the internet ready for Laser Cat?
From the guardian:
Obviously, artists do respond to new technology, but it takes time. Real art comes from within. It has soul. There is a time lag for technology to be absorbed and experienced to the degree that soulful art can be made with it.
Video art is the obvious example. Television became universal in many places in the 1950s, but it took until the 1970s for artists to start making worthwhile experimental art with it. And it was not until the 1990s that such experiments entered the mainstream.
I reckon we will start to see the really intelligent, serious art of the digital age in about five to 10 years. On the other hand, the technology may have already changed so much by then that art cannot catch up.
In that case, we may be stuck with Laser Cat as this century’s answer to the Shock of the New.
