The quote that stood out to me the most was “New media also allow us to create versions of the same object that differ from each other in more substantial ways.” I think this applies to art because one object can be painted and perceived in many different ways. The object is the same but might have an entirely different meaning to the artwork. Just like digital media allows us to create a variation of the same object, art allows us to manipulate the object to form a specific meaning to the work as a whole.
Artwork can also differ in colors just as digital images can have different tones and saturations. Monet does this with many of his pieces. The object in the artwork are exactly the same the only thing that changes is the colors used to paint the piece. Changing the colors of the work can create a whole new mood to the work. Cool colors suggest more of a somber feeling, while warm colors give the work a more passionate feeling. Just as an artist can do this with paints, anyone can do this using digital media as well.
