My point of view regarding my preferred medium:  There is no such thing as virtual art. Virtual art is real art. Ok sometimes you have to walk around a unicorn and a dragon to get to it. But it's stll real art. It is real because it is an artist idea put into action in a way that others can view and experience the work. The only virtual art that exists, is art which does not yet exist, but is so close to being made that the mere talking about it makes it virtually art.  You did not make any art, you just thought about it and in your mind it's virtually awesome.  No my friends, that is not art.  THAT is virtual art, and it is NOT real.
