Science/Art/Eco: in the open work of art you can see the resonance of some tendencies in modern science: the concept of the field comes from physics: a new understanding of the relationship between cause and effect: more complex interaction of forces. There is a departure from a static and syllogistic view of order. Indefinite relation, complementarity.
Reception/Eco: the work of art offers the interpreter a work to be completed.
Openness and disorder are relative terms! Something is ordered in comparison to a previous disorder.
Definition openness of the first degree: integration and knowledge mechanisms are characteristic for every process of knowledge.
Definition second-degree openness: grasping that constantly open process, it allows us to perceive new contours and new possibilities for a form.
Openness: the recipient has freedom of choice.
Art/Science/Eco: certain structures in art appear as epistemological metaphors, as structural decisions of a diffuse theoretical consciousness (not of a particular theory, but cultural belief). Mirroring certain achievements of modern scientific methodology in categories of uncertainty, statistical distribution.
Bivalent logic, causality and the principle of the excluded middle are called into question.
Art/Science/Cubism: parallels to non-Euclidean geometry. Parallel between Hilbert's attempts to axiomatize geometry and neoplasticism and constructivism.
Eco thesis: in a world where the discontinuity of phenomena has called into question the possibility of a unified and definitive view of the world, open art shows us a way of seeing and recognizing this world and of integrating our sensitivity. This discontinuity is not narrated but it is art. ((s)VsEco: strongly affirmative attitude: that it is about recognizing the world.)
Alienation/Art/Eco: Epigones have become alienated from a habit that now fixes them without allowing them to move in an original and free way._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
