4. Aesthetics and Distribution Case (1): Preliminary Notes on Art’s Ability to Radicalize Academia
In this posting, I would like to pursue an earlier tangent, and redirect it. If we start with the idea that a medium is constituted by a dialectic of applied use and technological development, and that it is further defined by the conventionalization of the relationship between the two (a process that occurs over time and is in a state of constant revision) it follows that a medium is never freed from its use, nor is it freed from its position between some agents in a transaction, meaning that it can never stand apart from these conditions.
Did you think that was me getting all clever? Fuck no it's from the highbrow but interesting blog 'STILL SEARCHING' Take a look HERE.
