What is dam?

The digital art movement is an art movement inspired by the power of technology and its ability to revolutionize art. This movement aims to push design into experimental territory, and to explore the ability to create art with digital mediums. Digital art is a frontier which has yet to be explored, and many of the tools used have become tools of industry. We aim to use these tools to benefit causes that protect the planet and its animals. This cause is (in short) a cause built around expressing the modern world with a medium that is the modern world, technology.

Personal Statement

My art is you, My art is me. My art seeks to represent the thoughts and opinions of our generation, using a medium that is our generation.
