What is art in today’s digital age?

Last week, I took a break from programming & composing in my studio, and caught up with friends about artistic opportunities, and recent successes and works in progress. A multi media artist friend told me very enthusiastically, about an opportunity to submit photographs for an inclusion into an artistic concept . After my initial enthral, I made a few calls, talked turkey, and started to plough through my own archives of digital pictures, some of which I considered artistic and individualistic enough to enter. I cropped, altered and re-jigged about a dozen or so, to make them entry ready, and uploaded them to the requistie private server space. Later that day, I ended up in a pro photgraphic studio, to catch up with another friend who was snapping a five piece band.
