Defining Art, Creating the Canon

This chapter addresses a much neglected issue: the importance of the artwork's relation to the momentary. It begins with a phenomenology of the Moment and introduces its links to style, image, and art. These links are then developed in much more detail through analysis of those arts of temporal realization, where perceptual or imaginative acquaintance with the image necessarily involves a linear temporal process. The contrasting way in which arts of spatial realization — most notably pictorial representation — relate to the Moment is investigated. It is argued that perspectival works have a privileged role. The chapter ends with a consideration of photography in relation to this role.

Keywords:   phenomenology, Moment, temporal realization, spatial realization, perspective, photography
