The death of art

Sun May 1, 2016, 5:14 PM


Eagerly, I see the rise in technology as undoubtedly a gift for humanity, how it can progress our civilisation in many ways, Computers that lets us play games as new-era virtual reality simulation, where we can use it to operate on patients with precision, robotics to aid space exploration and help paralysed people to see, talk and walk.. in many aspects of our lives, technology will aid us along our way through evolution, but.. there is something that worries me, the death of humanity and the birth of AI where we are beginning to see humanity and all it's flaws as a hindrance, we are beginning to see our bodies as machines that need upgrading and fixing. What I worry most is the loss of fear, anger and sadness that drives us to care for one another, these very feelings help us create paintings, poetry or music that mimic our very emotions, and I fear, without them , these art-forms will be merely decorations rather than a statement.
It's only a matter of time until most of us will have the capability of creating a piece of art within a matter of seconds and print them out on a 3D printed canvas and it will be undistinguishable from a painting that took weeks to complete by an artist, take these companies for example;  Deepart  and Prisma, they take two images, one of an art piece and the other of a desired photograph you would like transformed and they get combined together to form a brand new, unique piece of art, sure it will look nice, but there was no effort in the work, no patience, no thought, no humanity engraved in the piece, it would be a cold representation that mimics humanity, there's no vulnerability in a machine, they do not fear and I am in no doubt that in the future, there will be a artificial human in the media headlines showing off it's ability, winning the hearts of millions who watch her as she demonstrates anything a human can do at a much accelerated rate and as we awe at her far superior mindset, humans will be left in the dark as mere cavemen, awaiting our species to die out so that the new Human 2.0 can explore space, I am.. of course over-thinking the path our civilisation will take in the future, but if we are pre-determined to kill off humanity, then what place does art play in the grand scheme of things?, will it even matter in a thousand years? who knows, but one thing is for sure, technology is in the middle of changing how art is produced
