Technological and digital developments grow exponentially. The arts sector must take advantage of the technology available now and be ready for the digital changes ahead, advises Daniel Rowles.
Many would argue that the ways we look at and interpret a painting, experience a performance or appreciate an architectural location have not changed in millennia. This may be true, but the ways we discover, research, plan and communicate our experiences have fundamentally shifted. Whether it’s because of search engines, social media, mobile devices or online reviews, our experience of the world has been changed forever by digital technology.
