Digital Art by British Council Arts

Digital art is a term and a practice that has been prevalent in the museums and contemporary art sectors since the 1960s. As technological advances mean that digital innovations are now pervading many more areas of our lives, the arts industry is starting to take the work of artists working in the digital realm increasingly seriously.
In the wake of the growing debate and critical examination of digital art, the British Council Arts commissioned this short film, produced by Dezeen, to ask: What is Digital Art? And why should we pay attention to it?

The film features interviews with 15 Folds founders Margot Bowman and Sean Frank, curator and writer Conrad Bodman, and artists Jon Thomson and Alison Craighead.
