I am in the process of navigating a career change into the art and technology of building websites. Sometimes it feels as if designers and developers are surfing on great waves of technology. Some are coursing along a crest, some are just starting out, some are waiting for the next big wave, from experimental research and design into new media and popular culture. The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai is among the best-known works of Japanese art, arguably so, because it captures something essential about the forces of nature and the human spirit. When we examine the print more closely, we can see the rowers are not going it alone, and perhaps they are not that far from home.
