DESCRIPTION

What is art and what is design? Where is the line? Is there a line? When did the concept of functionality become antithetical to fine art? What is the role of design in art and art in design? Must we still refer way back to Plato, who identifies only music and poetry as fine arts, relegating the work of the hand as lowly materiality? Surely, nearly a quarter into the 21st century, we must re-assess our thoughts about where boundaries exist now. While we create new definitions for community, and new paradigms for communication, where do the visual arts fit in? We are surely bound by our materiality. Ours are the “too, too solid flesh” of the arts — actual, not virtual, art in three dimensions. We may be the last bastion of brilliance in designing the material world, and isn’t this the right time to celebrate that?
