Book design
Just as humans evolve over time, so does the knowledge we surround ourselves with. Technology advances, philosophy changes and ideas are tied within the context of time. While it is important to look at all knowledge with a sense of curiosity and open-mindedness, it is also crucial to engage in critical thinking to make sense of these ideas. All knowledge is relative. Use words wisely and fully. Trust intuition and actively expand your breadth of knowledge through experiencial learning. This book is a collection of three essays by authors who question several institutions of knowledge including the power of language, the validity of art criticism and its relationship to beauty and art education.
