2D and 3D

C and I were discussing last night: what does it do to 3D art to have it first mediated through 2D art? C thinks eye-hand-coordination during 2D might be necessary to get to a greater depth in 3D. I am not sure. What about a virtual drawing program that provides you with every shape imaginable (you imagine it – there it is) to create a 2D model of your 3D piece (yes, I know this is how many artists work already. But this program REALLY rocks – it’s as good as expert free-hand drawing). Now, your hand is not involved directly anymore in creating the 2D projection of shapes, only indirectly through pressing buttons, making connections etc. What’s deeper? What is deep anyway? I know it when I see it, that’s all I can say.
