Question regarding Paper Topic

Postby Bravos of Steel » Mon Apr 07, 2008 7:25 pm

Hey all,

I have to think of a paper topic dealing with Computers and Creativity, or computers and art by tomorrow morning. Problem is, I can't seem to pinpoint a topic that I can I feel comfortable doing. This is a thesis paper, so an argument needs to be made, and that's another problem; I have trouble making an argument on a topic that deals with art and computers. Now a paper dealing with a system like Questec and arguing for or against it is something I can do, but this is not at all my cup of tea.

So what I am asking is, do any of you out there have an idea I can begin to ponder about the topic of computers and art/creativity? Nothing really in depth you have to do, just an idea or statement that deals with both, and hopefully it is something that I can expand upon. Thanks guys!

Take a side and argue the benefit (or disadvantage) of Photoshop?

You could explore the reasons that designers, artists, creative types prefer Macs to PCs.

You could even "interview" me for the paper if you came up with some questions and posted them up here.

That's a tough one. If this paper could be about computers/Internet applied to art, in the broadest definition, you really have a variety of topics to write about.

I liked Sim's idea but I think you could probably wind up talking about how the Mac system architecture is more geared towards desktop publishing and media production than balancing out the subject of how creativity/arts applies.

If this isn't an argumentative essay, I'd suggest you write about the profound effect of computer technology on the special effects industry.
