I’ve always been very sceptical of Powerpoint as a medium for creativie expression – it’s by Microsoft – it’s designed for business! However as more and more schools use it to teach their students to create Digital Writing, so artists are turning to this medium, so however inappropriate a tool it is, it is being used creatively!

David Byrne says on his website: “I have been working with PowerPoint, the ubiquitous presentation software, as an art medium for a number of years. It started off as a joke (this software is a symbol of corporate salesmanship, or lack thereof) but then the work took on a life of its own as I realized I could create pieces that were moving, despite the limitations of the “medium.” I have shown these pieces in galleries and museums and most recently have produced a book with a DVD (Envisioning Emotional Epistemological Information) as means of presenting these curiosities.” http://www.davidbyrne.com/art/eeei/index.php
