Art & Technology?

I’m smitten by this new app from Google called Picas. £10 later I have an HD version, endless filters and sharing capabilities.

I’m stumped with one question. Although the original image is mine and in this instance its a painting on a shirt, so there’s no copyright issue, but when does it stop being art?

Now if I could put this in paint I’d be happy. But a digitally manipulated print? Hm. Maybe I’m just a purist. Perhaps I need to loosen up?

Well, whatever. At least I have something new to try with paint. I guess the sky is the limit and you, the audience will decide what is art and what is not in the end analysis by what you like, or don’t like!

But you know what, who cares about any of that? I love this app and no one is paying me a bean to say so!

Nice one Google.

About Phoebe Thomasson

I am in love with expression in all forms; art, poetry, writing, music, dance...I want to inspire creativity, foster understanding and nurture the process of transformation in myself and others. In short, I want to evolve. This requires trust in speaking one's truth and freedom from fear and shame. If we cannot speak our truth without shame, then we have far to go! Join me as I heal my psyche through the creative process and find interesting perspectives as I go about my personal evolution as an artist, mother, and Shaman.
