Colonisation of the Virtual
We have moved into the Digital Age. This is a new age of exploration and colonisation of the virtual.
Fine art is being dragged “kicking and screaming out of the century of the Fruitbat” (by Terry Pratchett [whenever]). The virtual is out there. it’s almost empty in our corner of the universe, which means that we have not met any of the virtual inhabitants – yet.
We think that we know everything. After all, we can describe things using two dimensional models, we can analyse them using scientific methods. Science is leading the way. This makes a lot of people think that the world is knowable and will give up all of its secrets.
