ABSTRACT

The artist must not forget that each of his materials conceals within itself the way in which it should be used, and it is this application that the artist must discover.

Wassily Kandinsky

The previous chapter defined digital art and then presented an argument that explains why digital art isn’t a new art form. This argument also tells us what’s needed to show that computer art is a new art form. The task is to explain why computer art is an appreciative art kind. In approaching this task, it makes sense to address three questions: the specialization question, the value question, and the art question.
