This community, we feel, is exploring the borders of digital art from a painters standpoint, without immersion in the digital art community. It was surprising to hear that they do'nt know even the name of Anne-Sarah Le Meur, also an artist and a scientist in the same University.
We could perhaps conclude, as we will do about the Variation show, that we have now entered a period where digital creation is not a project per se, but only an aspect, not necessarily explicit, of our technological environment. (Conclusion subject to revision).
