Technology and the arts: Past, present and future synergies
Philip Boucher, Technology and the arts: Past, present and future synergies, EPRS, European Parliament, May 2019
From the first canvas paintings to the production of musical instruments and contemporary cinema, art as we know it would be simply impossible without resource to humanity’s historical cache of technology development. The reverse of this relationship is also important, with the arts creating driving innovation and generating substantial demand for technology products. In the course of their work, artists often develop new techniques and push the boundaries of the imagination in ways that can provoke new directions in technology development.
