Living in the information age means you have an abundance of newfangled inventions available. A computer in your pocket, a small robot to vacuum your floors, a car that can park on its own— all of these things used to be dreams of science fiction, but in the 21st century they’re all very real.

According to the Tate Museum, digital art was a term that was first coined in the early 1980s. This was the period when engineers first put together a simple paint program known as AARON that would then be used by Harold Cohen, a pioneering digital artist who used AARON to paint on large pieces of paper.

Depending on how you use it, it’s sometimes practically impossible to plan an entire day without your phone in your hand guiding you through it.
