The purpose of art

In considering art, you only know what you like according to what you know. The history of art is also the history of ideas, which are dynamically changing through time.  I started asking myself some questions about what art can do and here were some of my answers.

  1. expression of consciousness
  2. visual expression
  3. documenting truth (record keeping)
  4. commemorate event
  5. documenting experiences
  6. communication
  7. propaganda
  8. enhance religious ritual

So how does this concept of art shape the emerging art of the digital world?
