Dewey is persuaded that art is multifaceted. It not only invokes the beholder with visual stimulation, but through emotions also. He insists that real art is the experience of creating or encountering the object (p. 205). Work in turn is no longer a part of the experience, if it is nonexistent, therefore, it is a refined and rather intensified form of experience in life (p. 205). To illustrate, the artist is a producer a work of art and his work is experienced by the observer.
When an author comes up with a creative work literary artistic or otherwise a glance of his personal trait can be seen in the work which cannot be found in any other work. This extension of the personhood of the author in his work is what makes it eligible for copyright which, further brings more work into the domain of copyright and furthermore, incentivizes authors to create more work. On one hand application of personality theory creates incentive for more work to be created, on the other hand it also disincentives authors form putting their work in the market as there are chances that it may be copied and with the argument of personality theory by a copier the original author would not be able to enjoy the negative right over his own work, once it has been proved that the copied work contains the personal traits of its author. This lead to rendering Loke’s labour theory invalid which my prevent authors from creating work with investing their labour, skill and capital, as it would not enable them to enjoy the negative rights against the society that the copyright law provides for. The author arguing Hegel’s personality theory could argue that they themselves have also invested labour, skill and capital although lesser than the original author, but their work is an extension of their will and personhood.
Our ideas that we receive are not always unique from one another, and that’s where resemblance comes in. Because, Hume says we can only receive ideas from past or similar ideas, and only if our senses can experience it through the impressions it receives. And an example of resemblance that Hume uses, is a copy of a painting, and when someone sees the copy of the painting, and they know it to be a copy, and they have seen the original before, they naturally think of the original one, to narrow down the origination and find out the impression of where the idea for this painting came from. Contiguity is another way our ideas are connected, the example Hume uses, is an apartment, when an apartment is mentioned it is natural to assume that there are more apartments, connected to it. For the cause and effect and how it connects with our ideas, is when someone gets a cut, they automatically know that there is going to be pain to follow soon after, which is due to a person feeling pain before in a similar situation, and even if it was not a cut, they still assume that they will experience pain, based on previous experiences.
Assignment: [Action ProblemImagination] An action is a causal explanation of the way in which the action proceeds and the effect it produces. Action shows the human behaviour and its subjective meaning.The individual performing the action is not passive but active and reactive. Imaginary exercises create an essential part of our inner self through imaginary situations.They engage our will and give us a drive through different circumstances to bring out the best in our performance.They prompt our imagination and a range of actions.They also give us an inner structure because we link all the things we want through the action. In this way Imaginary Exercises help us to access and release emotions.They also enable us to react spontaneously to
It makes a distinction between appearance and essence. It is a very appropriate philosophical method to apply to the theory and practice of art therapy. (Carpendale, 2003) Merleau-Ponty, the French philosopher, writes that philosophy is “not the reflection of a pre-existing truth, but, like art, the act of bringing truth into being.” (Merleau-Ponty, 1969) Betensky (1995) wrote "phenomenology offers an answer to a long needed unbiased approach to art therapy in all its spheres: theory, training, and professional practice.” She articulates the importance of 'seeing ' and suggests that this is art therapy 's most important contribution to general therapy and even to phenomenology itself, because art therapy pays attention to the authentic experience in two ways. First of all
In order to create ekphrasis, one must be able to describe a work of art with enough essence to convey the feeling it creates. In order to truly capture the essence of art, one must have an interaction with it that transcends sensuality. After all, the purpose of ekphrasis is to achieve the same effect through a different medium. There is no way to translate a visual experience into a textual experience without putting into it a part of the experience itself. Even the traditionally aesthetic experience of beauty causes us to see art differently.
This is a statement I conquer with. In my opinion, Art utters emotions especially with the expressional freedom that Today's Art has available. Contemporary Art requires knowledge of the context and culture, in order for the Artist to communicate effectively his message. The artist expresses his thoughts, feelings and ideas in a way that can be transmitted through their Artworks to the audience. Accordingly, enriching their experiences.
A still picture is almost like a tool filled with power to bring about change in the world. It is a medium to both, show the truth and to critique the ways of the world. It is a creative way in which humans can reach beyond the boundaries of language and communicate ideas. It is very essential to realize that each still picture is an embodied vision, that is, is has been created from a certain point of view and has taken form of certain set of thoughts. Thus, looking at a picture becomes the experience of meeting another person, notably the one who created it.
Inspired artwork shows just how inventive an artist is to be able to draw from another individual's ideas and turn them into their own. The ability to merge two polar opposites to create a cohesive piece is always an interesting thing to see. Also, this type of inspired work has familiar visual references for the audience to see, making the piece relatable on a subconscious level.
