I don’t think that the artists studio has become completely obsolete. artists become more creative when exposed to to a wider range of experience, but he will always need a place where he can collect his thoughts and put them together. In this manner the laptop takes the place of a sketch book and with all the resources available the artist may become overloaded and need a place of respite. Many artists still use convintional mediums and they will still need a place to work. in their case the laptop would be a sketch book. As web art is completely a composition of air and electricity. Art made by hand has more substance in physical sense and has the essence of the artist in the work.
