What are the upsides and challenges of a world where almost anyone can be an “artist”?
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? These are the questions addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
For the next installment of our Kinowatt Film Series, co-curator Maori Karmael Holmes and I will be presenting this film along with an audience discussion lead by a few local digital artists (music, graphic design and film). Come link up with some other creative folks!
