  • Only visual when it is.  You're using the narrow definition of pictorial.

  • Umm, no, sculpture is still Visual Art, people still look at it.  Sometimes people get to touch things, Henry Moore's sculpture in particular, but usually it's "Hands off!  Expensive museum stuff!"  Art is all about looking.

  • Unless it's about listening.

    Sculpture could be about touch I guess.  Cooking is art for taste - I literally did tell Buster that a few months ago; she said something about cake decorating, and I was no, I mean there is, or can/should be an art to preparing food, ask any high-level chef.

    Don't want to think about smell art...

  • Well you could get all Trumpian about "the art of the deal" but the original context was a badge for doing visual art for the forum.  I don't think there's any ambiguity in "Art is about looking at things" in that context.  Stuff that shows up in art galleries that has an audio component, is usually referred to as "multimedia".  Maybe you could get into trouble with Installation Art if somebody installs an empty room that only has hidden speakers in it.  Take that up with museum curators I guess; most of the time someone's running a slide projector or has a faffing object in the middle of the room or whatever.

  • As a matter of fact, I have, Tales of Known Space again recently, and I was thinking of Kdatlyo touch-sculpture, sure, but also something like a little carved wood whatsis you sell yuppies as a fiddle toy for when they drop acid - I had a nice hippy girl loan me one once; they are a thing.


    Music, b; music.

    We could always go with some clip art of a paint brush - but that would suck twice, thrice over.  We'll work something out.

  • It has, and of course I owe you a free change on the spot if you want, mon.  I was just riffing on "Jet-", and knew I was engaging in a risky tease fiddling w/ that field.  Jah knows I'm glad you're being cool about it.

    Until quite recently, spider silk had the highest tensile strength of any substance known to man, and the name silksteel pays homage to the arachnid for good reason.
