Technology does not create Art

I can’t remember where I heard it but it goes something like this. Someone asked the “Artist” (Meaning someone that creates) what is the secret sauce to your project. And he says the secret sauce is you not the software or hardware. They are just tools. The Artist you that creates is the secret sauce.

Tech does not create Art, emotions, or connect with people. It can help be the bridge for those kinds of things.

People Make Art, make the connections and bring their humanity when we connect with another person through whatever we do using tech.

Tech with the help of a person helps make it meaningful.

I used to like technology and drool over the latest tech news that I can consume, but slowly I over the years I realise that the software just like other technologies of old can’t create the art that is in your head.

Photoshop or the latest graphics software cannot help make the next great art piece or book. It still requires a human that has lived through the ups and downs of life to generate art that can inspire and connect with another human being.

While there is doom and gloom surrounding the impending explosion of Tech taking away jobs from people and reducing the workforce a machine can never replace the human connection and touch that art produces. At least for the next 25 years.
