Game/Movie Comparisons Raise Art Question Again

SpacialCoogs Re:It's things like this that... (99 comments)

People who would argue that movies aren't art and because theyrequire vast amounts of money or corporate backing have not studied their art history. Most artists could not afford to be an artist in Medieval times without a Patron or financial backer. The cost of some pigments alone were more than most people would ever see in their lifetime. Look at the Catholic church. How many wondrous pieces of art were made in it's name. They were the biggest financial backer at that time. As an artist, I would consider gaming art, and movies as well. They all involve a creative purpose. As do all artistic endeavours. Whether it be artists who use menstrual blood and feces to rail at the establishment, your local glass blower or potter to people like Brian Choo who is the creator of Episodes 1,2,3 robots. Just because a process embraces the technology of the time doesn't mean it's therefore invalid. Artist have used technology for ages. Look up Vermeer and see the work he did with optics if you need an example. But this is just my humble opinion.
