Social Media Art

Social Media Art | The Social Media Artist | Scoop.it

"This article entitled ”Social Media Art in the expanded field” written by Ben Davis, discusses the relationship between traditional art and the social media, and the different forms of art or non art that comes from this bond between the two.

 

Davis points out the importance of social media and how this took over any other initiative to promote artists and artistic creativity. Throughout the text, the author makes reference and gives explanation to numerous terms that come out from art and social media. Davis defines art a product which is brought forward by a creative process and a creative thought by the artist, which sets it aside from another ordinary, every day object. On the other hand he defines social media as a virtual world where everyone meets and talks and that it is also a platform for all kinds of advertisement."
