Books, cameras, music, watches, TV, radio, audio have all been revolutionised by digital technology. Reel to reel tape recorders, 35mm cameras, pen and paper still exist and are used less but will never die. Their legacy has been passed on to the digital age. Book publishing, recorded music, radio and TV were once the domain of the professional or the serious amateur enthusiast but not anymore.
The analogue recording/film studio may be a thing of the past. Photography meant taking time to get the exposure right followed by many hours amongst chemical solutions, tanks and trays in a dark room. Not anymore. The new technology makes it is so much easier for anyone to produce work of expert quality. The artist is freed from having to translate his or work for the technical specialist and can take direct control.
