aesthetic operations

"...aesthetic operations are what artists do. Knowingly or not, when you are choreographing a dance or composing a piece of music, you are formalizing, exaggerating, repeating, manipulating expectation and dynamically varying your theme." - Ellen Dissanayake

Click on my entry title for the article "The Dance of Evolution: or How Art Got it's Start" by Natalie Angier in Wednesday's New York Times' Science Times section on the origin of creating art.

Sincerely yours,
aesthetic operator
