"Technology has had a greater effect on the cultural thrust than art. Technology has created technological man. It has created political change. It has created aesthetic change. It has created many levels of things that we thought art would. Probably the greatest reason why technology has taken over from art is because art was always technology anyway. The art of the cave painter was a technological art. It was an art of how to do it, how to image the society, how to present society with a working model of itself that would in face be a 'conceptual tool', a valuable and useful device for shaping of that society. Now we are arriving back technologically to cave painting. We're now at a point where technology can present us with a working model of ourselves."
