  1. This might be a silly question, but how do you interpret this? (from the stigmart call for art): stigmart/10 strongly encourages artists whose works present a synesthetic approach to art regardless of the medium used, stimulating a dialog between different cultures and artistic researches.


    • JRow–What is your take on it? IMO, and my personal take on the *artists whose work presents a synthetic approach* means artists who combine cultural influences. Since synthetic = synthesis
      But, then for some time now, I have been interested in visually combining my American upbringing with influences from expatriate living in Asia.


    • ahhh, ok. I was reading it differently and that might have been why I was confused. I was thinking synthetic meant maybe like infusing technology or something that somehow removes the artist from directly making the work, but then I couldn’t see a flow b/w that idea and the cultural component. The way you explain it makes more sense to me 🙂 Thank you!
