Requires people action functional
Hierarchy in the process her work is social rather than relational aesthetics
Written very critical
He doesn’t believe that art makes a different. And she seems to side with that more.
In reality it’s not all peachy keen.
Opportunity to change
Open your mind
You can’t do your work without people
Bishop is more realistic and Bourriaud idealistic
Plato- believes art not useful and not true
Aristotle- does believe art is useful as therapeutic and purges dangerous emotions
This brings in form and content= giving meaning
Our brains are always trying to make sense of things and using our familiar to start filling in the gaps and we constantly constructing up something that we can understand. Interpret.
“ Rules of Interpretation” –Things are therefore altered now through this
-it must be also evaluated, within a historical view of human consciousness.
We can never go back to the time before theory we will always be justifying things and feel the need to defend it. I feel that many artists try to achieve this idea of being unconscious, but I feel that could never be really completely pure.
Art w/o implications – not possible!
“To understand is to interpret. And to interpret is to restate the phenomenon, in effect to find an equivalent for it.” (Paragraph on Freud & Marx)

- She paints with her back against the world
- starts to paint after she is inspired
- She mentioned that artist today get inspired but by the time they get to the canvas 50 more ideas pop up into their mind.
- know what you want
- she mentions education being bad because it makes you think that everyone can do it that way and succeed
- art is made through inspiration
- todays art is mostly ideas> conceptual art
- the only real high art left that is pure is music, its abstract
- art is a response to the emotional

It started out with me being unable to articulate verbal language to others. Painting became my outlet and way of communicating the “big heavy things” in my life and the current world around me. At the age of fifteen I had made my mind up and it was set from then that I was going to be an Artist and use that to speak to the people. Practicing art for me has always been pleasurable but as I matured I realized how much art has an influence through Art history courses, my knowledge was expanding and I came to understand the goal that I wanted to be a part of. The outlook of the world through my eyes and viewing it to everyone I knew. I saw mostly problems and history repeating itself. I did not understand this, why are we so reluctant to change when it is for the better of us all? So through my work I look at today’s society and try to make sense of it and also bring what have become our daily norms into, what I like to call its “true light.”
Artist at the moment:

What I will be looking at:
-The effects of excessive online networking of children
-The tactile lost of play in today's society
-imagination is becoming less more inventive
-making people into having shorter attention span
Majority of today's media involves sex, violence, and drugs > moral conduct?
So if children are our future, what are we doing right now to ensure that we have a bright path laid out before us, to skip about with ease?
As for the research goes more the reading and some field work in and as the year proceeds I am very interested in doing installations and start to incorporate audio as well.
-public areas with children (observational studies)
-Reading books and articles that delve into my subject from other focuses and their point of view
Images that come to mind:
-lima beans as a metaphor
-the fetus development
-social child play (toys & games)
