I’m using the typad application in my iPhone to write this post. I’m still amazed by how easy it is to do all this without being tied to a desk. Here I am on the moortop taking photos and writing to you.
Creative technology used to be something you had to spend years leaning and now anyone can snap away and publish at will – without being restricted by talent, place , time.
I went to see Vic Reeves last night who was talking about his art. I must say I was impressed with his passion for art and enjoyed the illustrations from his new book. One of the pictures he said took him about minute to make – no, less than that, he said. It was a shot of a railway line taken on his iPhone.
Do you think it’s all too easy? Perhaps because the technical aspects are easy a whole new set of values come into play where the ideas are more important than the physical creation.
