    A long time ago I made the mistake of answering the question “is there anything that can’t be pierced” with “eyelids.”A few days later, Kelly from Yonge Street Tattoos in Toronto showed me a photo she’d taken while at a convention in Florida. She told me that he said the piercings didn’t bother him, but that she thought his eyes did look pretty irritated. Aesthetics, the philosophical study of beauty and taste. It is closely related to the philosophy of art, which treats the nature of art and the concepts in terms of which works of art are interpreted and evaluated. This article addresses the nature of modern aesthetics and its .

      It may be wrong to judge a book by its cover, but many artists believe that books actually are more than mere reading material. In this comprehensive collection of art made from books, we explore the myriad of ways that bibliophilic artists inventively transform works of literature into works of art. Decorative art, any of those arts that are concerned with the design and decoration of objects that are chiefly prized for their utility, rather than for their purely aesthetic qualities. Ceramics, glassware, basketry, jewelry, metalware, furniture, textiles, clothing, and other such goods are the objects most commonly associated with the decorative arts.

    Summary of Body Art. If life is the greatest form of art, then it seems only natural for artists to use the physical body as a medium. This is exactly what many Performance artists did to express their distinctive views and make their voices heard in the newly liberated social, political, and sexual climate that emerged in the s. It was a freeing time where artists felt empowered to make. Stay safe and healthy. Please practice hand-washing and social distancing, and check out our resources for adapting to these times.

Art historian Kenneth Clark states in The Nude (): ‘The goddess of mannerism is the eternal feminine of the fashion-plate.’ Mannerist art treated the body as a collection of parts, which could be enlarged and exaggerated at will.

Many of the art-anatomy folios also employed this type of visual selecting of anatomical parts. Drawing from the advertisement and advocacy of body makeovers on television, in aesthetic surgery trade books, and in the print and Web-based marketing of face lifts, tummy tucks, and Botox injections, Deborah Caslav Covino articulates the relationship among objectification, abjection, and identification, and offers a fuller understanding of Reviews: 1.

Etymology. The term ‘somaesthetics’ was coined by the American pragmatist philosopher Richard Shusterman in through the compounding of “soma”, an expression derived from the Greek word for body, and “aesthetics”, a word derived from the Greek aesthesis, meaning ‘sensory perception’.

Shusterman has reported in a number of his works that he chose ‘soma’ over more. Dada and Surrealism and postmodern fine art are characterized by a critique of the dominant social discourse of functionalism and the demand for a sublime poetics to be brought into everyday life.

How do art and morality intersect. Today we look at an ethically questionable work of art and discuss R. Collingwood’s view that art is best when it helps us live better lives.

We’ll go. A work of art, artwork, art piece, piece of art or art object is an aesthetic physical item or artistic creation. Except for "work of art", which may be used of any work regarded as art in its widest sense, including works from literature and music, these terms apply principally to tangible, portable forms of visual art.

Body modification is defined as the (semi-) permanent, deliberate alteration of the human body and embraces procedures such as tattooing and body piercing (Featherstone, ).Those practices have a long history and are well known from various cultures in Asia, Africa, America, and Oceania (Rubin, ).There is also evidence for the prevalence of tattoos in Europe, dating back.

Increasing awareness of the crucial and complex role of the body in making and experiencing art has led to a diverse range of biological and phenomenological philosophies of art.

The shared emphasis on the role of the body re-connects these contemporary theories of art to aesthetics' pre-Kantian origin as a science of sense-perception. Plato's influence on western culture generally is a very strong one, and this includes a strong influence on the arts, and on theories of art.

In the case of the arts and aesthetic theory that influence is mostly indirect, and is best understood if one knows a little bit about his philosophy.Joseph Grigely, “Postcards to Sophie Calle,” Michigan Quarterly Review (Spring ): – Reprinted in The Body Aesthetic: From the Body in Fine Arts to Body Modification, ed.
