There is a distinct and obvious connection between art and technology. In particular, how these two entities combine, and connect to create a beautiful piece of film.
Art and Technology Creates Magic
Both art and technology involves the systematic use of a technique and skill and involves the testing of ideas and theories.
At Pixar, they believe in the swirling interplay between art and technology at every stage of the production. John Lasseter's famous quote which captures the dynamic of Pixar is:
The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.
Pixar breaths life into characters that might never have existed but for your imagination.
Anything becomes possible in Pixar's world of animation. It can entertain, explain and fascinate. Pixar serves as a powerful vehicle for ideas; and presents the beauty of animation as an artistic and technological medium.
This has taught me that art and technology should not be viewed as two different and separate entities; rather, art and technology should be incorporated together to inspire innovation, and improvements within each medium.
On a personal level, this has inspired me to pursue both an interest in art and technology as they are closer than I initially realised.
