Reboot for the next big thing…

Thinking about photography the other day, I was reminded how the impressionist movement was a reaction to the development of photography; since one could capture reality exactly with a photograph one didn’t have to rely on the painted image to record reality and one could begin to look more abstractly in the movements that became to be known as impressionism and expressionism among others.
It seems that new technologies always spur on new movements in the arts it makes me wonder if what will be the art form that will be developed in light of the internet. Are we seeing the beginning of a new artistic world on the webpages of Facebook or Instagram?
