Disruptive Technologies in contemporary arts practice. What is the future of contemporary arts practice?

When arts subservience to a need for entertainment becomes an obscuring factor in audience relation. Beyond Interaction, Many contemporary cultural practices play with the science nonfiction of social media technology. The dogmatic responses to former practices have given us a world of mundane interactive technologies that already look crude. Technology has moved on so much, and its momentum continues to grow. However, the fact is, that software cannot keep up. It cannot join up quick enough. The potential of technological innovation to almost instantly revolutionize ways of living is upon us. The monopolization of market through credible innovations becomes evolutionary. Survival of the fittest and fastest growing have created the likes of Google, Facebook and Youtube. But these monoliths are quickly turning into the foundations of a new generation of Social Media and they themselves sit on an open source movement that must be allowed its independence in order to evolve. Linux! Drupal! When we look into the crystal ball of contemporary arts practice we can see a world that is projection mapping and configuring our very existence. The result is that interface becomes userface. The userface is bodily integration. It again perpetuates a cycle of innovation that splinters out and effects every aspect of our daily lives in some way. It can bring new awareness and approach to every physical part of our experience. Our userface becomes our omnipotance. Careful where you stand. Which way you look, unprocessed news can be dangerous. But the true lesson we can all learn from these stalled aspirations sitting under a pile of un-deliberated code; is that the process must be organic. It must start from the grass roots and aim for blue sky.
