Transcript of Interview With a Practitioner

What does it all mean? Aesthetics Chris Daniel, Blue Hell Studio How do you define aesthetic experience?
Is it limited to, or the same as,
artistic experience? But not all aesthetic has to be in art. I don't know if I have a definition of "aesthetic," but when I am making art I am proud of there is definitely a certain aesthetic level . . .

Did the artist take time to make sure the audience can appreciate the work? A lot of different little weird things you see in the day will give you that feeling. It doesn't have to be in a piece of artwork. Do you think others approach your work with the experience of aesthetic experience? Why or why not? That said, once you put it out there, you kind of have to let it go. An audience that takes the time to go see art is going to be affected by what you do if they see the care and the time you put into it. Do you approach your work with the intention of creating aesthetic experience? Well, a lot of different things are commission-based. But when it's actually sculpture, I try to push the boundaries, pay attention to the details. What would you like your audience to gain from viewing your artwork? Is it something they cannot get from another source? Well, it's totally different now than what it used to be. It was all about making mysterious things out of found objects, drawing the viewer in to investigate. When you're an undergrad, you have these whimsical ideas of just making these GIANT pieces. Now it's more about being refined. You realize nobody buys this big stuff. Now it's about how small you can make it, and how perfect. It's still about drawing people in, but the scale has changed. Do you think the definition of aesthetic experience has changed in our culture? How do you know? YOU WALK THROUGH THIS building AND THERE ARE DIFFERENT VIEWS OF THE AESTHETIC. Americans don't really have one culture. a lot of young artists seem really lost. It's sad, they can't figure out what they like, and a lot of them seem to just do something partway and stop trying. It's a great thing about America, we're all in this melting pot, but you have to believe in your own values.
