|The Treachery of Digital Art
Perhaps this is because we still, even after recognizing the basic treachery of imagery as pointed out by Magritte, expect our artwork to be somewhat material. Seeing implies
believing in, if nothing else, the object-hood of what our eyes tell us is there. But, what if
it is not there? What if there is no it, at all? Is there still Art, there? This quandary lingers
even after a digital file is materialized in a form we commonly call a print. And here
again there is treachery as words fail to fully explain this digital artifact.
