    He's probably the only person over a certain age in Romania who KNEW games come with art.
    I have a gallery
    Here.
    I try, at least.
    There's nothing in it.

    While I agree that everyone in SoCal this Saturday May 12 stop by Gallery Nucleus from 7-10 pm and say hi at your opening, I must take issue with the idea that the distinction between art and design is my own. (This was a longstanding understanding. For example, Denman W. Ross' theory of pure design is not called a theory of pure art for a reason. Art was never understood to be synonymous with Design, ergo there is a definitional distinction to find if one cares to make an analysis.) Design as it applies to composing is not the same, and was never the same, as design applied to the problems of creating diagrams or decorations. (One can overlap these disciplines, for sure, but that doesn't make them synonymous.)

    As well, aesthetic philosophy isn't arbitrary. And no amount of special pleading will change that. It wasn't called Kunstwissenschaft for nothing. The arguments didn't arise from some provincial cultural state. They amount to a unified theory of human perception and conception.

    Having said all that, I'd like to point out that birds are funny little creatures.

    His left leg is out of perspective, so you might wanna go back and check it again. Also, recheck your proportions.

    I too can contribute to this thread in similar fashion. Behold -

    I know, right?






    But honestly, now, to get OT, we will never know why this man did it. I doubt the media will give him a chance to explain himself. And, even if it does, I don`t know how coherently he would be able to do it.
    At one point in his mind it all made sense. It was justifiable. It felt right. And a mans mind is a weird, weird thing...

    kev, I am never going to argue with your sources or try and one up you when it comes to the study of aesthetics but I will argue that all that has been written and is being written can never dispute or disprove the experiences I've had with art.

    Ultimately after a lot of study, looking, and doing (like you) I have also come to my own conclusions and I'm a pretty smart guy too. And my conclusions don't always agree with what the smart people have written about things.

    I have been moved by a roomful of Rothkos. I have never been moved by a single Rothko or reproduction thereof but I have been by a roomful. I can't argue with that. Just as I can't argue with my first physical experience with art, three perfect Vermeer's, I can't argue with visceral feelings I've had with other work which I might not otherwise love. DeKooning, Rothko, Klee (whose work I can otherwise love) to name a few.

    I'll not build a religion around those aberrations but I will acknowledge them. So even though I can't make a dog from my keyboard I can revel in my limited Rothko joy.

    I'm trying to understand this: is it art because you had an emotional reponse to it? Is art defined by the producer or the consumer?

    Although one might be forgiven for thinking that, given that there's an aesthetic philosopher for almost every opinion one could possibly hold about art.

    Not to get too dada here, but I accidentally capitalized its feet.

    I am not even trying to define what is and isn't art. That has become too difficult for me and I avoid difficult. I am expressing an opinion and why I would never say it's not art. Until we come up with an all knowing art committee or one omnipotent art god I'll leave each to his/her own definition.

    Kev has a good handle on what he believes is art. I just make stuff and hope people will buy it and have a certain insight because of that. I teach illustration so I won't need to define art.

    Thanks. I wasn't trying to put you on the spot, but it's an interesting question to me, and I agree that you're in a position to have special insight. Seems like regardless of whether something is or isn't art, value is relative to each person's experience.

    There's a logic to how the various value-charged words bandied about in these conversations held meaning within the context of aesthetic philosophy. Agreeing with that logic is not a belief in the same sense that one might believe in an ideology. This is like saying that Maxwell's equations are opinions.

    The modernist attempt to transcend the logics of aesthetics only changed how most people understand the words used. Not their referents. This linguistic revolution allowed created objects to be called by names that were previously understood to be inapplicable. But a rose is still a rose. The phenomenology of the art experience has not been altered one jot. No more than the activity of our synapses would change if we called them Carman Mind Switch Gaps™.
