I have posted some videos of an Artist Bloggers conference on my ArtProofer blog. They are filmed by James Kalm from Brooklyn, USA.
The art world seems to be going under a radical transformation, due to the explosion of online media and networking. The question is - Is it worthwhile to have an Internet presence as an artist? If the answer is yes, then what form should our presence have?
Do really successful artists (established and financial artists) bother about an online presence or is it just the wannabes and tryhards who are pursuing this medium in a desperate bid for exposure and potential success?
As an emerging, emerging, emerging artist I find it difficult to know - I am looking at these things from the bottom up and not from the elevated heights of fame and fortune. But this begs the question of what do you want to achieve by producing art. Is art a career or is it just part of your life? The previous posted quote by Einstein suggests it is something more than either of those things. Suggesting that it is almost a compulsion and life quest, part of the deeper aspect of of our lives and motivations.
If you can make a living from these passions then you are doing well indeed - but the motivations of some in the art world at times seem to be tainted too much by dollars.
