Sean Scully Unpacks Art and Technology
Scully: Well, I think that it’s difficult to make a performance without a performer. You mentioned performance, you are only using, you are only using technology to record the performance. You can’t make the performance. Human being has to make the performance and painting is a primitive act in a certain sense, always has a very humble relationship between thinking and doing. It’s a very, it’s a very primal act to touch something and to color it. How that can be subjected to technology any more than already has been without actually stopping it from being painting I don’t know. If you look at cartoons for example, old cartoons from Walt Disney and new animated stuff. The animated stuff now has entirely different character so you can’t really changed something without ruining it and my guess is that it won’t happen because painting always manages to find the way to be dominant and it has ever since people been talking about the end of painting as lot waiting for God . Well, God never arrives.
