  • Bummer. I've been working on this same project for a year now. I think it's more about the relationship between artistic media (ie painting, photography, digital imaging, and printmaking) more than about the man v. machine thing. And if you care for the academic side, I could write an essay about the glitch and the revelation of the process, understanding the medium, etc. For now I'll go wallow in an artistic funk.
