The relationship between technology and art, has moved from just using technology (for example, Photoshop-like software) to produce art to technology as a component of an art piece. Photography took a long time to be accepted as an art form. And this fact may seem strange to a lot of us now. But how many of us would really appreciate the art, now being made, where technology is like the paint on the canvas? Cultural, social and technological factors played a definite role here, if we look, at the places, where this art has flourished and are being nurtured.
