Digital Collecting - New Tools of the Trade


What does it mean to collect in the digital age?

It’s undeniable how much technology has influenced art and its market in recent decades. But what does digital collecting mean? Digital Collecting refers to the use of technology in order to collect and manage art collections. This can include anything from using apps to catalog pieces, to using 3D scanners to create digital copies of sculptures.

Digital collecting allows for greater accessibility and engagement with art collections, as well as making it easier to track and manage pieces as well as allowing you to connect with other collectors around the world. In recent years, there has been a surge in the use of digital technologies within the art world, as businesses look to increase efficiency and engagement.

Digital collecting is one area that has seen significant innovation, and it is clear that it will continue to play a major role in the future of the art world. However, it is important to remember that digital collecting is not just about buying and selling artworks; it is also about preserving them for future generations. In order to do this, you need to be careful about how you store and protect your digital files.
