Digital Divide Reading Questions
1. Bishop mentions that a digital film can be copied infinitely on the internet, as opposed to an analog film, which is why analog films maintain their "uniqueness". Why is it that art on the internet, which can be copied over and over again, is debatably less valuable than art that cannot be duplicated. 2. She mentions that an artist exhibited more than 4000 postcards of Niagara Falls on the internet, and that it is impossible for any one person to individually embrace each picture and that the average viewer just skims the surface of each image. At what point does digital art or images online stop being valuable because our generation is so used to skimming over the surface of an image as we browse?
