Artistic trends and the impact of technology
Think about art. What names come to mind? Maybe Picasso, Rodin or Dali.
When you think of technology, you usually think of a smartphone or a computer. But technology has also offered artists new means of expression throughout history. These two seemingly disparate disciplines are now more intertwined than ever, with technology playing a vital role in the growth and evolution of art.
People are shaping our future all over the planet. The internet, digital manufacturing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, self-modification, robotics, augmented reality, virtual reality and “the singularity” – all of these change our lives and our outlook on the world and on ourselves .
Scientists, software developers, innovators, entrepreneurs as well as musicians, visual artists, filmmakers, social workers, and designers are all working on new ways to interact with people. They are responsible not only for the creation of original works of art, but also for the evolution of entirely new art forms. More and more artists are pushing the boundaries of art, incorporating elements that are not considered “conventional” into their work. Art is becoming less and less static, taking on a variety of new forms, including 3D printing of digital sculptures, flash mobs, and photographers.
Moreover, in the last decades science has been considered the best because it involves intelligence. After that, it was Arts & Humanities, and finally, at the very end, it was Commerce. This must change. Even today in India, it is widely accepted that studying the arts and humanities limits professional prospects and is not financially profitable, which is unfounded in many ways.
The humanities are gaining ground among businesses and students in today’s world of new age employment. Job prospects for STEM graduates (in Artificial Intelligence, Analytics and Software) will undoubtedly widen due to rapid technological disruption and digitization. Due to technological disruptions caused by artificial intelligence and digital transformation, there will be more career prospects for humanities graduates in the coming days. For the simple reason that these technologies are becoming a part of humanity – helping, interacting and enabling people to study the influence of the humanities on such technological topics as robotics, biomedical engineering, artificial intelligence, data science or biotechnology, which must develop rapidly.
We can safely say that the flow of the arts is a tidal wave of possibilities. It is one of the few streams in which students can choose the field that interests them the most. The humanities are a vast field difficult to define in a few words. The humanities are concerned with the study and understanding of the human condition in general. It involves discovering the historical context, understanding the reasons for the evolution of human behavior, as well as understanding the socio-cultural, economic and political systems that exist in human society.
