This was inspired by a subthread on the ‘why CAD is needed in
classes.’ thread. Unfortunately, that one has become. predictably
Thus, I’m breaking my question out into a new thread.
It was mentioned that one of the goals of (historical) painting was
realism, right up until the point where photography permanently
grabbed the high ground. At that point, the painters took a left
turn into abstraction, going where cameras could never follow.
If CAD grabs the section of the market that is currently cast. (Let
us presume for the sake of argument that it will.) What then?
Painters could hang a left into abstraction easily enough, it was
all just goop on canvas.
Our stuff isn’t. Where can we go that the machines can’t follow?
