As our future progresses, everything is changing and those that adapt survive. If a budding artist is looking to supplement their earnings with real money online casino Canada sites like new-casino.ca/real-money are perfect second incomes. But this option wasn’t around a decade ago so who knows how many future Picasso’s didn’t immersive themselves fully in their talent due to lack of funds.

In fact, without the technology of the internet, many artists would have had to rely solely on local customers, or those passing through. To get your name out there was a feat in itself. Now, the new-age artist is dreaming about their next project during their 9-5 office job, fulfilling their passion in the evenings from their spare room and selling their work from their own website during the next day’s breakfast. Click, click, sold! UPS will take care of the rest.

You could say that art is a representation of daily life, of seeing the ordinary in extraordinary new ways. Just look at Andy Warhol. But it’s more than that, it’s about the artist pushing themselves to not only create new and interesting pieces, but using technology to be their medium. It’s one thing to write a piece of beautiful poetry, it’s another to have those lines beamed onto the side of the Empire State or a rocky mountain landscape. Using the technology at hand to push the limits, to broaden the scope of the piece to further impact the beholder.

Augmented reality is perfect to capture a new generation of art lovers and artists alike. It’s one thing to see a piece and be moved, it’s entirely another to understand the drive and emotions the artist was feeling when they created it. Street art, on all corners of the world, can now be more easily understood by anyone with a smart phone and the right app. And by being more interactive, it will be more easily welcomed by the younger generation, thus sparking an interest that may otherwise have been missed.

One thing’s for sure; you will never experience the same emotion by looking at art through a lens as opposed to standing right there. Anyone who has stood in the Denon Wing of the Louvre can account to that. But if viewing these famous pieces through your phone’s display is the spark that lights your artistic passion, then isn’t it worth it? And maybe the future’s Picasso will create an entirely new version of cubism, and one that solely exists in the online world.
