After listening to Wil Wheaton‘s PAX keynote about computer games, I thought about art. In the past decade or so, two mediums have shifted in the public consciousness from cheap pulp entertainment into potentailly legitimate art form: comics and video games.

So, I wonder, what’s the next medium to transition into Art? Some possibilities:

  • Fanfiction
  • Commercial packaging
  • Advertising
  • Selling
  • Selling things on the street
  • Sports
  • Programming (the source code itself)
  • Hardware/electronic design
  • Exercise

Note that all of these media have afficianados. I’m wondering how many will become generally perceived as artistic media.
