Question: How is technology changing art?
Robin Cembalest: I think obviously there is artist that are working with technology constantly in ways that I don’t even understand in terms of the works they are making, the way they transmit work, the way the work that actually exists on the internet, the way it exists as a aviator, I mean all the ways, the same ways the technology is influencing culture in general, I would say.
Question: Are we going to see anything new come out of art?
Robin Cembalest: Yes. I think there is always something new that comes out of art. Some times you see a painting that is new in a blossom art. It does not have to be technology to make it new, it can be a certain point of view, it can be - I mean there is an artist that shows the space gallery name Tara Danovan who makes these amazing pieces out of styrofoam cups and the way that she puts them together is mind blowing, I guess that is new, who thought of making these clouds out of styrofoam cups.
