100 Years From Now.

Will there be people and artist? If so what do you envision art looking like? Nothing right or wrong in this thread, just pure speculation!

The only innovation yet to be done would be for a robot with an Artificial Intelligence programming to paint as it sees things without any further human intervention after the initial program, like David at the end of AI, the film.

"Will there be people and artist?"

Well, in a dozen years I will be 100 and I don't see that much difference in art.

In fact, I am still creating the artwork I grew up with.

Maybe I'll see more change over the next 100.

I'll let you know.

provided our species survives and the coast isn't submerged. people and art will remain. camera's in some form will there, paint will still be here, there will be new forms. such as beaming the art to your brain, interactive 3d, holodeck style art. full immersive interactive art, where you can talk to it.

some things will be easy to make, maybe a direct brain transfer, your thoughts become a creation. 3d printers will be normal, print everything, the metal, plastic, glass etc.

we will finally get to wear red jump suits with those little metal ringlets on the arms.

Will there be people? Yes

Will there be artists (or art)? Yes, of course

Will there be FAA? Hopefully, and my royalty payments will keep coming in automatically on the 15th of the month to my grandchildren via Paypal+Amazon Virtual Brain Credits.

The most popular prints will be extinct wildlife, dystopian city scapes, and retro political posters featuring Trump and Biden.

The heart of art in 100 years will be holograms. The diversity of art will continue to grow. That is the nature of the digital age.

The third economic build up to AI will be happening. It possibly will fail like now and some forty years from now. Specifically fail in broad based applications and succeed as it currently does in constrained situations.

Sentient machine life will be possibly 200 years off.

Space travel, we will have colonies on Mars and the Moon. We will be using Lagrange Points to bring cargo further out into space.

Material science and medical science will have made massive leaps. Most people will live to over 100 years old. Frankly the odds are almost no one will live to 120. Extending life wont happen. Just my reasonable guess. As things stand today, there are only lies about this.

Food, the environment, social justice, crime, will all be much better.

We will have nuclear fusion. We could have that now, but need to directly fund the engineering of it. Photovoltaics, wind power, and batteries will be extremely efficient. No fossil fuels will be burned, other than a wood fire. Plastics will be replaced. There will be a great environmental waste clean up.

I am an optimist.

Then again, as Einstein said, paraphrasing, I do not know what weapons will be used in WW III, but in WW IV sticks and stones will be used.

Art will exist - both human art and AI art.

AI will (a) know us much better than we know us themselves and (b) be more capable in producing anything, including art. As a result AI art will dominate an art world.

Most people would prefer AI art (probably if it is not advertised as AI art).

Most will be Digital 3D, virtual reality based and some synthetic based medium possibly due to a severe lack of natural resources which if available will be extremely costly.

Timely post, Ronald. At the start of this month I began creating a new series on the premise of looking ahead.

In Once Upon That Time I've ventured a tich further -- in around the mid 2300s.

In regard to 100 years from now -- binary based art illustrations/depictions will be pretty much old school -- probably will be considered vintage by then.

My 2300 series will likely appear positively archaic/primitive.

Fun giving it a go, though.

Will there be people? People like. It'll become increasingly more challenging to distinguish between 'types'.

We're about due for a takeover by one or another flavor of puritans. Art will be banned. Even religious art will be banned because has a creator other than whatever deity is ruling at that moment. The deity will probably NOT be Dionysus.

Here is what AI is capable in art in March 2019 - "A never-ending stream of AI art goes up for auction - In the second major auction of AI art, a video installation shows endless AI-generated portraits" (https://www.theverge.com/2019/3/5/18251267/ai-art-gans-mario-klingemann-auction-sothebys-technology). Just imagine what AI would be capable in 100 years.

I won't be here or there - It matters not to me if there will be humans at all - and to some degree - there is the distinct possibility that humans will be extinct - having killed themselves off either through war or epidemic/pandemic, or most likely - we will have poisoned the earth until it won't sustain what we now call humanity. In any case, I'm not to worry about art.

 

Floyd Snyder

I have prints for sale that are from artists dating back to the 1400s.

How accurate would artists of the 1400s have been at predicting what art was going to be like in the 1500s? Probably no more accurate then I can be predicting art in 2119...

But the only ones that will really be able to see who's predictions were accurate or not are Keith Richards and Willie Nelson.

 

Robert Kernodle

In a hundred years, artists will become bored with cameras and technology, ushering in a new era of old-school mastery, where only the most skilled technicians in these old ways will be revered. Graffiti will have been outlawed, carrying large fines and prison time for those who insist on doing it. Body art will be looked down upon as destroying the natural beauty of the human body .Everybody, basically, will do some sort of art, as coastal cities thrive, and past fears of catastrophic inundation will be laughed at as childish idealism gone awry.

Like most Informational things a painting styles evolution followed an exponential curve. Initially for thousand years with no changes, than for hundreds, and so on. Than there was an explosion of "-isms" - that explosion marked an elbow on an exponential curve. Predictions were relatively good - at a times before an elbow on an exponential curve. Of course, predictions for a same time intervals are awful at a times at an elbow on an exponential curve or even more awful after an elbow on an exponential curve.

Note that on AI evolution we did not see anything yet as we are far away from an elbow on an exponential curve. However that explosion for almost sure will happen in next 20 - 100 years.

If there are people 100 years from now there will be art. I wouldn't even try to speculate except to say they it will most likely be more like today's art than not, assuming people are generally as free as they are now. If the world's population ends up governed by a totalitarian type government then art will largely be dictated by that government and will all be very similar. I've visited a large collection of Soviet art and while it was very good it was all very similar in theme and style. If you look back 100 years the types and styles of art practiced then are still being practiced. While Abstract Expressionism become dominant for a while Impressionism and Realism continued on in the background, I suspect that will continue, maybe digital will offer something truly different and become dominant, (like A/E did in the middle of the last century) but all the other types, themes and styles will continue, that is unless government mandate makes them illegal.

It seems we've already crossed that threshold, Roger.
Most art these days just gets hung on cyber walls.

The worlds of tomorrow are virtual.
Curating and exploring digital environments will be the perceived reality.
Much like today, most people won't even be aware of their corporeal vegetative state.

The word "original" here is only being misapplied by you. If you walk into a gallery and ask for an original painting do you really think the gallery owner is going to look for a painting she thinks expresses original thought? Also, if you ask that same gallery owner for an original photograph or original digital piece she'll look at you funny ask for further explanation of what you are looking for.

That's not a slight against digital art or photography, it's just about the definition of generally accepted terms in the art world. The theory of what can be considered an "original" idea or thought is for a different discussion.

That is only marketing as I keep explaining to you. It is not reality.

Just because on the boob tube they say NEW and IMPROVED......does not mean it is new and improved.

It's not about marketing at all DB, give it up. You obviously have a sore spot about the fact that originals have an intrinsic value whereas digital files do not, that's reality, not marketing.

"next you will be telling me Coke "Antiques" are extremely rare"

Actually some are, try getting an original Coca Cola cooler from the 30's or earlier, they don't come cheap, especially in good condition. Low supply AND high demand, = high prices, simple economics. Nobody prefers a reproduction, but people buy them because they can't afford or find an original. That's not a marketing thing, people just prefer things that are authentic.

RE:.."Original"

CONTEXT, CONTEXT, CONTEXT

I sell originals, because each piece is different

Yet

I believe that I create art that is original in concept, because no one else had thought of it before.

Hopefully, even some of my digital art.

David K, look for old Coke lithographs and screen prints. They are more likely to be hand printed. That is where the real value is. The rest can go in the recycling bin so that the intrinsic value of the material can be extracted. Finding Coke stuff 100 years old is interesting. I think 100 years from now that it would be even more interesting finding Coke stuff that is 200 years old.

RE: "Coke"

Particularly the well known Coke Bottle.

To me, it's certainly original , since no other bottle is like it.


By the way,

When a passerby at a show comments, "My that's original"...I take it as the strongest compliment possible

 

David Bridburg

3 Days Ago

I take it as a compliment as well.

Usually the comments run a different way for my work. More like that is "truly different", and because my work is very conventional, I get "I like that a great deal". Two generations of people now after the 1960s, outside of the arts, rely less on the word original. In the 60s the term was endlessly heard.

In a hundred years from now, hopefully I will be out of this prison dimension and able to influence the minds of artists all over the universe. I hope to at least.

I imagine that a child will open a book and the characters will arise from the pages, but not paper figures, holograms that move and have real voices and real histories. I will be a specter in the background with ideas and philosophies to down load into brains...unless by that time humans are able to communicate with certain safe dimensions like the one I'll be in.

I think we will have smart phones that import a few longitudes and latitudes and tones so we can view different time periods and communicate as well with the people of the past not necessarily in the past, but watching their past and communicating with them in their present time. Times through space can be seen through devices developed to see other dimensions of time with the ability to communicate with those people or beings. For example we might be able to communicate with George Washington where he is in the present, and watch him at the same time sign the declaration of independence or simply a family member or look at a crime scene and talk with the perp after he's passed. It takes imagination to create technological devices ...they all begin as art before they become reality.

Of course all these devices are being developed now as I speak... but they'll be in every household in 100 years.

I piece of past futurism, from yesterday shows you just how wrong we can be --

In a fairly inhospitable part of the industrial part of the Baltimore harbor sits one of the only nuclear powered cruise and cargo ship ever built, the NS Savannah. Launched during the frenzied days of the Cold War and Eisenhower's "Atoms for Peace" campaign, the ship never saw much service and, for decades has been sitting, awaiting its next fate. It would have been scrapped years ago except for the fact that it's a nuclear ship. Yesterday the Maritime Museum (which has WW II ships, etc) in Baltimore had some tours, conducted by docents wearing dosimeters. I didn't hear about it until it was over, but definitely would have gone.

For a few moments, the future was nuke. Then people got righteously scared of radiation, then Chernobyl and 3 Mile Island happened, and that was that. The future became the past and now the past is semi-derelict, sitting along side of huge piles of asphalt and concrete that await recycling.

Many of the popular futurist from a century or more years ago certainly imagined utopian societies owing success to technological advancements whereas proletarian revolution is averted by means of robotic servitude. The implication being, prosperity via universal scientific knowledge, sparks the elimination of the monetary inbalance. These ideas may have been fostered by Walt Disney's father who help build the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and passed them down to his son. The result being EPCOT. Unfortunately EPCOT never became what Walt Disney envision: a city occupied by scientists and engineers continuously developing technology for the greater good. BUT for $100 plus plus, you can be entertained by Disney's pipedream for a day.
Others had dreams of such utopias. Hitler, Stalin, Mao Sa Tong and.......so forth and so on. Pick your dictator!
Have a great future!

BTW many great architectural and industrial designs have come from the strife to build utopian like dwellings, cities and industrial communities.
The utopian zeitgeist and the state of the future.
