My interpretation of “the dematerialization of Art” is that art nowadays is becoming more and more subjective and conceptual from the initial plan and concept the the end result. Instead of art being “what it is” through what the creator intended, we see art now as “what I want it to be”. It isn’t what it ought to be but rather what others infer it to be themselves. Like the saying “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” mentality. IDK in this regard I feel like people are putting too much thought into something that may not be that deep.
My takeaway from “The Creative act” is that the vision of the artist and what the artist meant to be displayed in the artwork isn’t what the viewer will grasp from it. It is the audience who decides whether art is “good or bad” and whether it should be shared or not. Even if the artist themselves think their work to be a masterpiece, it may not be so in the eyes of the audience. It is the audience who decides whether the art piece has a place in the community and in turn history. And whether the person in question is an artist or not.
Intermedia is art that fuses many different art practices together through the use of new technology. It’s “an exploration of the new and uncharted”. Where mixes media uses different art mediums to create collage, intermedia uses sound, performance, text, video, picture and much more. Intermedia is not secluded in a particular movement or style but and idea that’s ever-expanding and changing as we advance artistically and technologically.
