The planet seems to be innovating at an unprecedented rate (and it shows no signs of slowing down). But flying cars and entire meals in pill form aside, what will the world of art look like in a century's time?

According to Sylvain P. Gaillard, director, Opera Gallery, the art world will have changed, but not in the ways you might think. After all, art has been around a very, very long time.

"I don’t think the art industry will have changed too much in 100 years. Good art is universal and spans time. For example, Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel more than 500 years ago and it’s still celebrated today. What has changed is the medium," he said.

"Traditionally, art was carved out of stone or painted on canvas, whereas now it’s being made out of everything under the sun. I myself have put together a humble collection of art, and I think that in 100 years’ time (maybe my grandkids will hopefully still have it on display) it will still be a worthwhile collection."
