Herring's observations struck a solid chord in my brain. Recalling words from McLuhan, explaining in simple terms that New Media is intrinsically meant for a New Message, made me understand in a snap why there are so many old school photographers and videographers falling victims of the digital technology divide. The divide does not exist in those of us who have embraced digital, but has become a divide for those who have reject or deny it, or stay creating the same type of message they are happy with, from back in analog times.

The Visual Arts HAVE to take on different creative roads, other than just emulating images from the analog past. It is totally valid to stay shooting film, and processing,etc, if your message has a meaning for you in that realm, but my take is, it may eventually fade away.

Herrings experimentation with classical music teaching and digital technologies is a pioneering work we all should feel proud of. Fully Made in Miami!!
