What is new media, and how do you feel it can be used by Jamaican artists? What cultural interventions can occur through its use? Is it only for an elite set of privelaged techno-freaks? Does it deviate or dilute Fine Art or can it be used to assist the artistic process? Does it feel like a European or American import that is trendy at the moment or could there be more potential than we give it credit for? Should the artist using new media look to other mediums such as Painitng and Film to create value and determine aesthetics or does it require its own approach?
You are invited to discuss the above questions and raise your own.
ART:Jamaica IS GOING ON A BREAK. This site is run solely by practicing visual artist & lecturer, Oneika Russell. There are a couple of projects that will be keeping me busy for a bit. I will continue to maintain our Facebook group and page however. If you are interested in guest editing or writing send an email to weareartjamaica (at) gmail (dot) com
