What would a high-tech art studio look like?

G asked:

Can you picture a technology based art studio and gallery space for two dozen digital (photos, video, music, etc) and physical artists (paint, sculpture, performance, installation, etc)? What would it look like? How would it work? How could you make the space valuable to the artists and the community while having a business model that makes it worthwhile? What would make you want to go there and visit, interact, and create?

Give us some good ideas and you may help shape a new type of art space.

    you may want to read through this:
    I came across it by chance recently and it sounded like good advice.
    Generally I think a lot would depend on what kind of rooms you own for that purpose or can afford to rent. The space will determine to a large extent what you actually can do. And it would look pretty much like other galleries. Multipurpose means no frills. Just have a bunch of powerpoint projectors and a good space for having parties and a band…If you are seriously rich you can throw in a sound studio and computer lab with expensive 3D programs (3D studio max, maya) for rent.

    Experience will be a key, how many museums and galleries you visited and how many internships in such institutions you have done? How many people with business experience are in the group of founders?

    What an awesome question! It would be huge, and mostly open though you would need sound proofed spaces for recording. A bunch of the biggest, baddest Macs and Cintiq screens available would be mandatory. You would need couches in each artist’s section that convert into beds so artists can nap or work around the clock, and people would need to be able to wander in and out and watch people work.

    You’d need round-the-clock security, but it’s not a good idea to let people live there – I tried a business like that and it’s a bad idea. You need a place to escape the studio and get away from hangers-on. Ideally, the shop would be working 24 hours, with people able to make their own schedules and work any time they want.

    You’d want a stage area, and either a coffee shop area or a picnic area where people can bring their own food and be comfortable. The main room would probably be noisy so you’d want some quiet rooms for people who need to concentrate. You’d mostly want it open, though, so artists can interact with and inspire each other.

    That’s my dream, anyway. Let us know what you come up with!
