The purpose of art is to impart the sensation of things as they are perceived and not as they are known. The technique of art is to make objects ‘unfamiliar’, to make forms difficult and length of perception is an aesthetic end in itself and must be prolonged. Art is a way of experiencing the artfulness of an object. -By Viktor Shklovsky’s “Art as Technique”.
“Art is thinking in images”, says Shklovsky. The idea is to apprehend objects only as shapes with imprecise extensions; we do not see them in their entirety but rather recognize them by their main characteristics.
Blonde_blotch is an ongoing collection of speculative objects (3D) and a part of the #everyday sub-culture existing on Instagram. The page features objects with some emotions.
“Art exists that one may recover the sensation of life; it exists to make one feel things, to make the stone stony”.
at Virtual Primitivism
Virtual Primitivism lies at the intersection of human and the virtual. It explores the belief in the value of what is simple, unsophisticated, and raw. It embodies the early stages of development of things not physically existing but made by humans in the virtual space. In the traditional location of San Vigilio’s castle, “Gruppo di lavoro San Vigilio”, overlooking the city of Bergamo, “Virtual Primitivism” will bring you face to face with the Italian digital art scene as well as international artists.”
