Art and technology have emerged as a result of efforts to understand, interpret and change the universe and nature of mankind. While the technology mediates communication between human and nature and transforms nature; Art helps to grasp the facts of the real world and make them more decent. These two concepts have influenced and developed together in every period of history. In fact, when we look at the historical background of the terms of art and technology, we see that both are expressed in a single concept in ancient times. The root of the word “technology” derives from an Ancient Greece word “techne”, which was used for art and craft concepts, and it meant the ability to manufacture and execute. The emergence of fine arts took place only in the eighteenth century, and the invention of the Industrial Revolution and photography became important turning points that led to the history of art. Along with the digital age we are in, a period has begun in which the concepts of space, time and reality are questioned through art. In this period, the artist can stand out with his/her design and communication skills instead of craftsmanship. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between art and technology in the historical process, the technological developments leading the art of our age and the prominent types of digital art; to examine positive and negative opinions about works produced in this area.
