I am starting a collection of words for later disuse in talking and writing about art (CWLD). This is not meant as a passive-aggressive jab at others, but a way to call attention to words I find have simply lost any contextual meaning in writing on art. I also need an outlet to bitch instead of using Elizabeth as my sounding board.
- Besides sounding clinical and detached, it fails to accept, or add, any context from, or to, the words and ideas in its periphery. While describing a work, or an idea, as “an investigation” is technically valid, it makes the description just that, technical.
