Interactive art for the iPhone/iPad/touch is a growing trend (for example www.iphoneart.org). However, the recent addition of Scott Snibbe’s classics of interactive art to the app store has got to be a milestone in terms of a well established and renowned artist joining this field.
This is very exciting and Scott himself feels like this where art should really be – Art wants to be Ninety-Nine Cents. He’s got an interesting POV on this stuff.
Rhizome also has a recent article on the convergence of iPhone and art.
This is an inevitable step in the evolution of art, and i’m curious what’s next, but for now I’m glad to see an additional and legitimate avenue for artists to get exposure AND get paid.
