The digital age has seen the emergence of a new kind of nomadic artists; using production and communication tools like computers, mobile internet, gps, digital video and more, they can stay connected and follow through their works from beginning to end while being on the road. It has become possible to take the contemporary and conceptual approach out of the galleries and institutions, that used to serve as the only platforms. In contrast to the widely spread dicsourse, in which art theory, history and the urban-social context are the main inspirations, the nomadic discourse is one of very closely dealing with people, nature, reality and oneself, while still being in context with the world through the virtual commnunity, the world wide web. The vehicles are ateliers and homes, facilitating the constant movement that brings never ending experience and inspiration, and the artistic discourse is transported to include audiences previously too remote to profit from it.
