Why I'm One Of Those Artists That Starve

It seems absurd to foresee a museum containing a digital archive for Interactive & Digital Art. And even if it were so, a museum would not be paying for the pieces they decide to store on their acid-free servers when the very nature of the digital medium is duplication.

The digital medium is the mass-medium.

With just the click of a button, an artist can be seen by millions... in an instant... hanging their art on electricity inside millions of plastic frames.

Making art with a digital medium is this.
Helping you recognize this as art is design.
Making no income from this, while being compelled to keep making this, is bad design.

This is why I'm one of those artists that starve.
