I post this eagerly interested in receiving feedback/discussion from whoever reads this. I work pretty much in a vacuum having only feedback from the PC. I admit it is a great silent partner without any argumentative personality except going blank once in a while. The Manifesto I request feedback is a personal statement since everyone else has one of their own even if it is not formulated on paper. I kept mine to a minimum without philosophizing on the technical details.
Manifesto: Art for the 21st Century by Alex Nodopaka April 2013
The advent of the computer eliminated the need of canvas and paint brushes and damn near the artist!
With the advent of the personal computer and the vast array of software programs to assist in the development of drawings, sketches, ready-made forms, architectural and engineering plans combined with their mix has in effect eliminated the need for long-hand execution for most artists except maybe for sculptors, and even at that 3-D drawing can translate in direct 3-D sculpting. The desire to paint, no matter how satisfactory the feel of the texture is, is a romantic notion of the past from which it is difficult to distance ourselves. Once the sketch or completed work is achieved with the PC, its reproduction by the numbers on traditional paper or canvas with traditional tools has become superfluous if not boring since the final creation is portrayed/demonstrated on the monitor screen!
In conclusion, one must take computer-assisted as a final portrayal with its attendant benefits of not cluttering our drawers with saved sketches and useless completed drawings and paintings, drying paints and varnishes, canvas stretchers etc.
Example of dynamic artwork & those of a static 2-D are not shown.http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a176/russkigypsy/figurativecubism317reddownhollywoodblvddynamism.gifhttp://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a176/russkigypsy/figurativecunism326colorbackgrdfieldworkers.jpghttp://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a176/russkigypsy/figurativecubism331alexplayschesswithmarcel.jpg
