This transition has dramatically changed the way culture is created, produced, distributed and consumed. Some artistic practices lend themselves better to navigate the troubled waters of the digital sea than others. Tensions and opportunities are found in all parts of the creative process.
- Technology opens up new expressive possibilities but time, money and training is needed to explore its affordances.
- Digital platforms enable a wider distribution of creative work but artists report difficulties to generate income.
- The digital may be a vehicle for more democratic and inclusive artistic practices but this role should not be taken for granted.
