from wikipedia: some folks arAesthetics (also spelled æsthetics or
esthetics) is a branch of philosophy dealing with the nature of
beauty, art, and taste, and with the creation and appreciation of
beauty. It is more scientifically defined as the study of sensory
or sensori-emotional values, sometimes called judgments of sentiment
and taste. More broadly, scholars in the field define aesthetics as
"critical reflection on art, culture and nature."ound here seem
to like to discuss deep topics, here's one that i like to see other
people's opinions about.
I appreciate your yearning but maybe you could slice the pie a whole
lot thinner to begin with rather than expecting people to swallow a
graduate seminar all at once and then discourse on it? What do you
want? What do you want to know? miranda
:D i was sort of goofing on sanity a little when i saw his graduate
course on ethics get posted, so i thought i'd post my own.
i'm a black listed biochemist/zoologist who got tossed in the streets
in the 80's and rescued and retrained to live on art creation by the
indie artist underground, deadheads, rainbow family and woodstockers.
i wrote an essay on sources of artistic inspiration for my college
aesthetics course and would like to see some jibber jabber here about
people's various arts and what influences them to create it. i
especially like to talk about art marketing and am seeking somebody to
represent my stone carving and mounting work for me.
you can see some photos at photobucket.com in the tommy tooter album.
Really? I been an artist for a very long time and the one thing I
know is nothing. It all comes from and goes back to nothing.
Art is unaccountable. I've found that the more people talk about
their art the less art they have. If you want to talk about art then
at best you're an art critic or art historian, both worthy enough
professions, I suppose. After that you're an entrepreneur or a
consumer, both necessary I guess in this wicked world. But really
I've never been able to stand around and chat up the customer nor a
fellow poet. Why? The work must simply stand on its own. Any time
anyone says, "In order to understand this piece you must understand
the context.." you are hopelessly lost in the relativist muck of
mediocrity. Likewise with, "You have to know what I was going
through..." Contexts have to be bourne innately, inextricably within
the piece itself; all being rendered universal. Whatever you want to
say ABOUT the piece needs to be said BY the piece.
What inspires me? EVERYTHING. love, Miranda
i'm going to guess that you paint from the way you talk about art and
being an artist. i can see how there would be a feeling of
nothingness and then there is something. is your art real looking or
very abstract? do you think about what you're going to draw and try
to visualize it or just let it happen? when i'm carving stone, i'll
hold a chunk and flip it around until i see something in it and then i
cut away everything that doesn't look like what i saw.
i've been playing music since before i could walk or talk -- grandma
was a piano teacher and some of my earliest memories were of her
holding me up to the keyboard and hitting the keys with my hands. as
i've learned to play various instruments -- my principle is saxophone
-- i can feel/hear the music flowing from somewhere outside myself --
for lack of anything better to call that source, when i'm riding a
groove, i say that the muse has hold of me.
