The 6 roles, tasks, or functions of artists
to create places for some human purpose, to create extraordinary versions of ordinary objects, to record and commemorate, to give tangible form to the unknown, to give tangible form to feelings and ideas, and refresh our vision and help us see the world in new ways.
the mind's role in focusing on the visual information we need for the task at hand and relegating everything else into the background.
What factors play into/influence selective perception? What does this explain about artwork? How does it pertain to interacting with artwork?
p. 15 ; the immense amount of detail, our mood, our prior experience in culture, knowledge, relationships etc. It explains why a work of art may mean different things to different people and how we may return to the same piece again and again noticing new details. Overall selective perception suggests that the most important key to looking at art is to be aware of the process of looking itself.
Common assumptions about art that are incorrect or have changed in the 20th/21st Centuries
art being abstract/nonobjective rather than solely representational or naturalistic, creating art simply to create. Photography had a huge influence here because the need for representation as visual records was simplified. "liberation from a lifetime spent copying nature". The creation of museums changed things, separating art into a privileged realm, and now people have pushed back on that by putting art in the "real world" ex: billboard art that was bought as an idea (p. 50)
