since art relates with other arts (such as painting, and drawing) but how does art relate with other disciplines such as english or history or math?
You explained to us that you use chemistry when you make a ceramics project. What other disciplines are involved in this?
I think art relates to disciplines such as English and History most obviously as they are all rooted in story and/or comunication. The way parts are organized into a whole is such that can be drawn between all three as well. Furthermore, English, History, and Art all have the potential for us to learn more about ourselves and the world we live in. Math relates to art most readily in practice. Artists, like engineers, use math constantly for practical purposes but sometimes theoretical or conceptual reasons as well. Also both Math and Art can be such that deal with the establishment of symbols, relationships, and problem solving.
I think the theme of the panel last week was that everything IS interdisciplinary if you unpack it enough. In order to maintain an active studio practice a ceramic artist has to have some knowledge of Chemistry, Art, Math, History, Engineering, Geology, Physics, Construction, Economics as well as things such as photography, digital media, painting, printmaking, welding, etc.
I was wondering why you chose to teach ceramics, 3-D design, and so forth and why you didn't want to go into painting, which is what most people think of when they think of art? But I've learned from you that art is all around us, I was just wondering.-Courtney, you're favorite ceramics student :)
I am currently enrolled in a class called Art Appreciation. You may know about it or even taught it in the past. Anyway, we learned (or most likely already know) that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Do you think that the way someone interprets or perceives art is often dependent upon the discipline of the beholder? Do our disciplines affect the way we think, feel, and reflect about a piece of art? Do different types of artists interpret or perceive the world differently? Thank you.
I think the decision to choose three-dimensional discipline was first because it had the most things I was curious about and then became such that is really permission to use anything; science, history, trades like welding and carpentry, and drawing and painting and printmaking, etc. etc.
Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder. So is justice, and love, and peace, and social equity, friendship, etc. etc.There is a great book by Mary Anne Staniszewski called Believing is Seeing in which she basically lays out the prospect that what we believe or are conditioned to believe directly effects how we see. This affects how we think of beauty AND almost everything else. Think about how you may view land ownership if your were a 16th century Native American who had no concept in your world. How would you view individualism if your culture had no word for it and everyone aspired to be the same? How would you view the murals in the Sistine Chapel if, in your culture, painting a mural is really a trade akin to shoe making or plumbing or masonry? Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder, and that eye is defined by the culture it's reared in.
