Art Is Not an Object (Sculpture)

Art Is Not an Object (Sculpture)

The phrase “art is not an object” has been attributed to a number of artists and thinkers, always followed by another phrase—one that attempts to define art (i.e., as an experience, a way of looking, etc.). My interest is in using this statement to problematize rather than present answers. The piece is also inspired by Robert Indiana’s ubiquitous “LOVE”—one of the most widely seen, reproduced and appropriated art works since Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.”

To view the piece, wake up the iPad and hold it so that you see the top of the pedestal in the camera.
