Came across this in my notes the other day, by David Edwards in his book, Artscience: Creativity in the post-Google generation.
(By the way, I googled “aesthetic mind” and got 5,240 cites. Wow. I have a lot of reading to do….)
When I speak of art, I will mostly refer to an aesthetic mind, by which I mean a process of thought that is guided by images, is sensual and intuitive, often thrives in uncertainty, is “true” in that it seems to reflect or elucidate or interpret what we experience in our lives, and is expressive of nature in its capacity for complexity.
Sound like anyone you know?
