How and why do people perceive art differently?
Three Wise Men
Aelita Andre
Sense perceive the face to be smiling and winking; intimacy and approachability
Emotions provoked; approachability and trust, contrary to the Alaskan's emotions
Use language to explain context
Reason that the features could seem unnerving
MONA gallery doesn't give titles immediately, this allows viewers to form their own opinions regarding the work first, which means that personal interpretations aren't influenced too much
We encounter art every day
Works evoke emotions in people, which result in varying perceptions
How and why do people perceive art differently?
Reason, emotion, language and sense perception will help guide us to a conclusion
Ethics and history are two other areas where perceptions vary and a similar conclusion can be made
Why do some people find clowns frightening?
Prominent features - almond shaped eye, mouth turned upward
Western Culture - Smiling or laughing
Why is the mouth and nose twisted?

Our cultural background has meant that we don't immediately see the man-eating mountain demon.
Alaskan Indian Masks
Art is used to express emotions, to tell a story or to convey a particular message
Through senses, the strokes and colors are noticed
Reason is employed which allows a deeper appreciation of the artist's choices
Judgement is then made, which becomes the basis of the emotional response
Language in this instance has allowed for a reconsideration of the meanings of the work

Different art forms interact differently with the ways of knowing; Poetry relies heavily on language
Some people find it easier to digest or interpret some ways of knowing over others
Not everyone has similar tastes in music, others enjoying different genres
Emotion- Synthesize differently
Sense Perception- Critical first connection with the work
Language - Lyrical importance
Reason- Wrapping together the three ways of knowing
Art can take different forms
All presented and perceived from different perspectives
Ways of Knowing allow us to make a judgement on a piece of art (whether we realise it or not)
