How does the role of the 'machine' define the quality of artisitic experience as the vehicle for delivery; in a way that resembles reproductions from books, as a change of pace from T.V., or as in computer art, as a stage for the original art form.If art is something that inspires you, can this sort of artistic experience ever equal that of seeing
with one's own eyes the original object? Who should be defining art in cyberspace in the future and its' availability to the public? What is going to be the contribution of curators and Museums in the future?
