Re: Re: normalization vs. generativity


This is why I see ignorance of the classical as a crippling defect in much contemporary art. It's often difficult to see, but per below, the would-be radically different depends and finds it's ground for launch from the fertile ground of the classic.

Re: normalization vs. generativity


The most effective work of art will reflect both normative and generative aspects. The normative aspect serving as a leveragable point of departure or reflexive ground for new lines of flight. The Different does well when respecting the Same in at least this way (e.g. viral effects are produced by forming a vital symbiosis or generative difference with the host, not by destroying the host).
