Art is not a linear means of communication and it is not a science. When viewing art, different people have their own subjective experiences. Everyone’s individual perspective on art is uniquely their own.
Art experiences are not things in and of themselves, but they are experiences that come into being as we interact with art. These experiences are phenomena that emerge through our intra-actions with art. In my thesis paper, I show how these intra-actions are related to experiences on the frontiers of quantum physics.
Quantum Physics exposes a reality very different from our day-to-day Newtonian world. Physicists have proven that observation-independent objects do not possess well-defined inherent properties. They are more like phenomena than a well-defined “thing.” They are the product of intra-actions between a subject and an object. Just like our interactions with art, what an object appears to be is dependent on the viewer’s perspective.
Art makes you feel how it makes you feel. On this you are the expert. Even the artist doesn’t get to dictate what their art does to you. As you intra-act with art, “something” entirely new is created.
You are the one who gets to decide what that “something” is to you.
