The inspiration of “Wonderment”
Is it possible to intertwine the sublime with free play in an art work?
My original question was: What is democratic Art?
However after much research and consideration I began to look at the types of art that truly inspire me to “wonder”. I consider this to be the basis of freeplay as defined by Schiller and Ranciere. I then began to think about the works of art that have truly inspired wonderment and the scale and nature of those works were bordering on the sublime.
I know that the sublime is supposed to leave you without any concept of self, but I think that there is a more complicated issue at work underneath the sublime and I want to research it further.
