Setting out to explore the new behavior patterns created as new technologies emerge, “Permanent Art” aims to reduce the dissonance between art and innovation. The project exposes the contrast between traditional art subjects and emerging digital solutions, opening up for new digital movements to become topics of discussion in public forums. Particular interest was given to art that overlap time, culture and forms a universal language, giving these practices a contemporary context.
