story = text
theatre= music = notation
dance = choreography
digital art = digital code
for centuries theater has merged storytekking in song with dance and scenographic images in a built space. Movies combine the arts of pictures, sound, and storytelling. What’s new is that multimedia digital displays are generated on one machine, an all-purpose representation device that deals with information in a common, digital code. By encoding text, sound, and still and moving images, digital displays offer one-stop multimedia.
digital art is either made by computer or made for display by computer in a common digital code.
a less obvious game changer is the use of digital encoding to make art
the idea becomes the machine that makes art
digital = made up of discrete and discontinuous elements
