  1. Yes, I think that some of the best art has been realized under duress and the weight of cumbersome technology. By having your hands tied to any degree during the creative process it forces you to work through difficulties and glitches that you wouldn’t have had otherwise, thus spawning a raw and rare magic out of the confusing brambles so to speak. In my opinion, nowadays the act of creation tends to be too slick, easy and foolproof and this impedes the gritty radishes right from the garden effect that still could be very much a part of the overall artistic experience of exploration and accomplishment.
