|2/26/2018 10:07:09||Not much different from "discrete".||discrete|
Art where digital technology is central. It doesn't have to be programming. Photoshopping can be digital art. Definitions like this don't usually have bright edges.
A programmable device. But it's wrong to say that computer art or digital art has to be about programming. It's ok for an artist to be a user of software programmed by someone else.
Electronic musician, programmer, researcher.
|2/26/2018 10:09:59||Anything done with a computer.||computers||Art done with a computer.||computers||An electronic device for storing and processing data.|
I am an algorithmic artist. I design algorithms that create images on a computer screen. Randomness is incorporated into the algorithms to create variations in the images. I see this as an extension of the traditional print-making process.
Broadly: 'Made of many identical units'. Not restricted to electronic things (a tile mosaic is 'digital' in this broad sense).
Artwork made with/of things made of many identical units. (Not a value-based definition.)
A physical system for performing computation. Related to but different from an algorithm (a way to perform a computation).
Digital artist, researcher, writer.
|2/26/2018 10:30:16||Based on the integers to the base 2.||binary|
Art that could not easily be made except using a computer. Obviously the word "digital" in this context means "computer. "
A Turing machine, if it had infinite memory. In other words, a machine that is capable of carrying out any algorithm provided it has enough memory. Human beings obviously are computers but are usually not included in this definition because many think that people are more than computers.
I am an electroacoustic composer and, by these definitions, a digital artist. I also write music software and write essays and reviews in the field of computer music.

|2/26/2018 10:53:32||discrete, not analog||discrete|
An ancient term, used by early civilizations to distinguish art made with computers from other art. Now a vacuous term since computers are used in so many fundamentally different ways in so many different art forms.
The thing through which I work, play, compose, draw, communicate, learn, submit to surveillance, and entertain myself (among other things).
My relation to *art* is as an artist, researcher, musician, teacher, philanthropist, consumer. My relationship to digital art is analogous to my relationship to water-dependent things.

"Of or relating to computational technology." Sometimes used to indicate an opposition to analogue (technology/electronics); more often than not used to signal "we're doing something with computers here!!!1" (see: grant funding, art commissions).
Frequently, not very good. Usually: art involving screens. Sometimes: art involving non-screen technology. Ideally: art made with digital technology for reasons beyond process, ie, it could _only_ be made digitally, perhaps because it interrogates the digital or because the digital is a part of its topic (see: net art).
These days... most things? An electronic device that can execute stored programs written by humans (or non-humans) to perform tasks (which may or may not have utility). So: a laptop or desktop computer, but also a phone, a smartwatch, most 'connected domestic objects', perhaps even a microcontroller. Increasingly, being on and of the network/internet is critical to being perceived as a computer - not necessarily the ability to perform computation, but to be part of the big computational network.

I tend to avoid "What is (x) art" questions as pointless. First, whatever definition you come up with someone will provide an exception. Second, I don't trust the motivations for needing one in the first place.
Something that computes. Could be a laptop, could be a person, could be a biological cell, could be something we have yet to recognize or understand.
Artist, maker, coder, researcher (prof)
A switch with an exclusive 'on' or 'off' state, 1 or 0. Many bits together form the basis of a vast array of different artefacts: photos, music, websites somewhat like a unifying abstract substance. The substrate becomes invisible when we interact with the artefact in perception, in the same way as in the cinema we perceive real movement rather than a series of still images.
Any art created or produced in connection with a digital backing. This should not be considered a static and strict category rather a broad, flexible and accommodating one. The category of digital art can always be subdivided if it is deemed to be of value. Becoming bogged down in ontological argument risks blinding us to the more important question of whether or not a work is any good. After Duchamp there is little point in asking whether or not the urinal is art rather is it any good as a work of art and what does it tell us about art and its institutions?
An interface to a digital substrate, a tool which enables us to symbolically manipulate digital products without having to write 0s and 1s. A machine which sits at the boundary of the material and the digital (although I'd rather not oppose these, the digital ultimately has a physical manifestation) and transfers energy from one to the other in an act or performance of processing.
A technologist (?) working with generative systems and machine learning. Possibly a computer artist.

New-media artist, transhumanist, consumer.
|2/26/2018 16:39:02||Not analog - some sort of chip-based activity.||computers|
For me personally something where code is prominent in the creative process - or some sort of specialist software that shapes the outcome and aesthetic.
Something with a chip running a process - but in conversation around this sort of thing I'd make the distinction with other technology by saying a computer runs a screen and/or operating system. Things like Arduino are borderline computery to me, and using these kinds of devices, the absence of a screen, brings digital art to life for me.

That something is represented by quantified symbols, usually (but not necessarily) stored in a medium accesed through electronics. The term is however much misunderstood and used as a synonym to "electronic". A book is also digital. Musical notation is digital. So the word has become meaningless. You say I should not think too much, but I have already - see here: http://warehouse.industries/en/entry/why-i-stopped-calling-things-digital-on-metaphors-as-obstacles/
Another meaningless term, since the term is actually not about things being digital, but being electronic, or done with computation in some way. Digital technologies is an integrated part of our lives these days, and art should/could/is about life and its conditions, and hence it is only natural that art involves technologies, as tool, medium and as integrated with the ideation in itself.
A machine or a person who can perform a computation, following a set scheme, usually called a program.

art is whatever the artist declares to be art. if they made it with the use of computers and the work exists (i.e. is manifest/distributed) through computers/networks then it could be called digital art. but art that results from our living in a computer age, that draws attention to or critiques the digital conditions of life is also often called digital art. prior terms for art such as new media, intermedia, electronic, networked-based imply some of the other characteristic behaviours of art that not all so-called digital art has - such as interactivity, responsiveness, social-engagement or liveness.

Something belongs to the programing and computing. From Digit that means not created with analogic tools instead using a computing hardware.
An artist can choose what tools will to use to express his/her art. If an artist choose software to create art (music, 3D, graphics, etc) it is called Digital Art. In the other hand if an artist as a Photographer or drawer, use software to enhance an actual piece of art created by analogyc proccess could or could not be called digital art. I guess it is matter of how much of this "enhance" aplly to the piece.
It is a piece of hardware electronics capable to proccess millons of binary data in order to end with a result pre-programed. In the actual world computers are everywhere and we use it for many dairy task, sometimes unnoticed. For me computer is a door to new wolrds of possibilities and vital part of my job. A fantastic tool.

For the time being, a computer is a non-biological computing machine. Humans are biological computing machines, therefore not computer. Eventually, when computers become biological, we could define a computer as being a man-made computing machine. But if humans start building humans using science, my definition won't hold.
I create computer Art with the software I write, I am an AI software developer.
devices and circuits that operate based on digital signals, i. e. information is encoded in strings of 0 and 1, with a defined resolution. the term 'binary' is certainly very intimately linked to my understanding of 'digital'. it's not a necessity though - for me other digital encodings of data are possible.
for me, digital is also intimiately linked to electronic circuits. the other big chunk in there would be all the analog circuitry, where information is encoded in different ways. that may be another discussion on eu-gene, though :)
i would mostly stick with philip galanter's definition - art that that makes use of digital tools. i do however think, that these digital tool(s) must be visible or feelable in some way. if you look at andreas gursky's photography - his pictures would simply not be there without digital tools (his hasselblads, his image editing software), every single of his pictures is heavily photoshopped and does not exist the way it's seen. BUT: it still looks like a photograph, so to me he's a photographer, maybe some sort of painter in a wider sense of the term. from my perspective he is not doing digital art.
call me popculture, but the first thing that pops to my mind as digital art is the demoscene and the intros to software cracks from the days when software piracy was still cool.
it's a machine that takes strings of 1 and 0 and converts them to other strings of 1 and 0 is in a highly controlled manner that is defined by an operator. this can be done with hydraulics, dominoes and a variety of other ways, but doing so electronically has proven to be most efficient.
i'll see how my definition widens as soon as ibm gets their quantum computers going.
i'm a wood scientist and i work a lot with computers. i do a some ceramics and wood carving as a hobby, but my relation to art - and particularly digital art - is anywhere between hobby and nonexistent.
