IdN v17n2: Retro Graphics


Nostalgia In Modern Times
Is there a counter-revolution underway against the “perfection” that modern technology has brought to our artistic endeavours? Time was when you could tell that a work of art had been man-made by the small flaws in its execution – these tended to give it an endearingly human touch and very often underscored the passion that went into making it. To say nothing of the serendipitous discoveries that came with a non-assisted approach. More and more artists, it seems, are taking a trip back to those less-exacting days. Call it “nostalgia art”, call it “retro”, it holds a lot of appeal for a lot of designers.
