What is Art?

Octave has investigated many aspects of this subject, always with the question, "How can we experience art in a more direct way?" Here we example two projects centred around ancient art treasures; the legend of Gilgamesh and one of the Lohans of Yixian. There are also some notes on the idea of objectivity in art.

"Sometimes I find that I can receive impressions at different levels in myself. If I try to look inside myself at the same time as at the work of Art, then there is more possibility of some fundamental understanding for me. I am more open. But sometimes I just judge, form opinions, and move on."
