Wikipedia Contribution

I revised a page for Digital Art on Wikipedia, drawing correlations between the rise of the internet and the prevalence of digital artistry. You can access my user page here, and the original page here.

Just in case my submission isn’t approved, here is what I contributed:

The rise of digitally generated artwork is linked to the development of the World Wide Web. Various platforms for digital publication, such as blogs, social media accounts, and multimedia streaming sites have offered a safe, reliable space for digital artists to showcase their work in an online environment. This unprecedented, immediate access to innumerable original works has created a unique and dynamic landscape that encourages community participation in development and instantaneous feedback and interaction.

Video game designers, for example, may take advantage of the community-based platform of Steam to showcase and develop original games. In Steam Workshop, content can be submitted by users with the intent to enhance gameplay and thus supports the growth of modding communities. Filmmakers and animators can attest to similar conventions available on YouTube and other visual platforms.
