The New Object
The new object is made from code, is made from pixels, is made from polygons.
The new object doesn’t need to resemble the old, should not resemble the old, cannot resemble the old. Or it is not ‘new’.
The new object need not resemble the old at all but should not resemble it one hundred percent.
The new object has a modern aesthetic, but modern changes and so does its aesthetic also. So the new object can only remain new through change.
The new object should highlight that it has been reformed digitally and take pride in the mistakes and error that may occur during the process because they represent its new state and how it came to be.
As tech changes, the new object if left unaltered and unused in newer processes becomes old. The state of a digital object can be infinitely altered. The nature of the new or digital object is change.
The new object is instantly shareable, alterable and can be possessed in image by any who care to take it. It is an infinite resource.
Much like old paintings tell us about old techniques, new objects if left unaltered provide historical importance for future digital artists.
Those interested in the new objects primary concern is to always look for new ways to present, create and re-create it.
