The term Digital Art got first used in the 80’s with the introduction of AARON, an art-creating program created by Harold Cohen. He taught his program to actually paint on a sheet of paper situated on the floor. Using real canvas and not pixels. The machine got taught through a list of objects/body elements and the relationship between them. It is independent, creating whatever it wants within the constraints of its knowledge. Through its decades of lifetime, its work evolved from lines and squiggle to depiction of humans and in-depth study of colours and shapes. Human-generated Digital Art can be computer-based, scanned or drawn using a tablet or a mouse. New technologies now allow the artist to go even further, creating interactive art, involving the audience and allowing it a certain amount of control.
