Mechanics of the Gaze


Art is about the aesthetic perception of the viewer. The way the sun strikes a building at a particular time of day can be art. It’s about going into the space vs trying to impose the space to fit our narrative will.

Old values —-> humanistic values —-> don’t speak to presence/perception.

‘Telos’ is the ultimate aim in art. How we experience something is what makes it art. Aesthetic is rooted in experience.
