Before the camera, the role of artists was to depict the real world. Art changed in the way that is was used or the subjects it showed, but each time it was a 'window into the real world'. When the camera was invented, artists realized that it was no longer important to portray the real world, and their role could be redefined. They started to express their imagination in different ways and to show something that is not real-- something that is abstract. Abstract art can be considered a major step in the evolution of art and it started with the invention of new technology-- the camera.

With the creation of the computer and its use in art, we are now looking at the next major step in the evolution of art. With the use of the computer, artists can create something that was never possible. The way art is defined itself is changing.
