Introduction

The development of information communication technologies and the increase in use have started to be used as a tool for cultural and artistic production. Digital art, where technology and art coexist, has created a free working space for the artist. Digital art provides an opportunity for direct communication with the viewer and creates an opportunity for interaction between the artist, the viewer and the work. Digital art is a contemporary type of art that includes many different art methods. Digital art using methods such as; sound art, computer graphics, virtual art, internet art, robotics, video, interactive art, computer animation, and distinguishes itself from the old visual arts. Today, new media is often used as an alternative to older nomenclature such as ‘digital art’, ‘computer art’, ‘multimedia art’ and ‘interaction art’. Also, new genres such as ‘net art’, ‘software art’ and ‘pixel art’ are also referred to as new digital art. As stated in Çokokumuş (2012) the first use of the term digital art was in the early 1980s when computer engineers devised a paint program that was used by the pioneering digital artist Harold Cohen. This became known as AARON, a robotic machine designed to make large drawings on sheets of paper placed on the floor. Many cities are not interested in the cultural or commercial dimension of art. Nowadays the cities that came to the forefront with art became the center of attraction in terms of tourism. New York, Paris, Milan are examples of these cities. In this context, tourist attraction centers can be created with developing digital art. The development of digital art and the increase in the number of artists interested in this art have led to the emergence of tourist attraction centers. In this chapter, digital art events and digital art museums determined. And finally, digital art events and museum examples are given where digital art is an attraction.

Key Terms in this Chapter

Internet of Things: The internet of things is a concept of creating online networks in part by placing chips, sensors, and communication modules in the everyday objects, and data in everything that surrounds people.

2D Digital Painting: With 2D painting, the artwork is created with virtual painting tools in an editing program using two-dimensional models. Video experiences.

Big Data: Big data is defined as a large amount of data sets that cannot be analyzed and managed with traditional data processing tools.

Digital Art: Digital art is a form of art, which is realized by the production of non-physical objects, in which the computer plays a role in the general production. Digital art can be defined as “sense of art used in digital production as a tool and/or medium in its production or exhibition.”

Artificial Intelligence: Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and reacts like humans.

Augmented Reality: The process of taking and integration digital info either with a live streaming video or with the user’s actual, real time atmosphere is called augmented reality (AR).

3D Digital Painting: More like sculpture, this technique utilizes modeling software to essentially sculpt on the computer. Items traditionally created by hand or machine can be re-created on the computer.

Virtual Reality: Represents three-dimensional (3D), interactive, computer-generated environments are represented by virtual reality applications. These environments will either be models of real or imagined worlds and that they aim at representing data through a synthetic experience.
