Infinitely Curious: What is Art? – An Interview with Giota Vorgia | 21 Jan. 2024

Art transcends and breaks down the boundaries of societies and history and answers this very big question: how do we define beauty in art?
If you look at any dictionary or encyclopedia of the past two centuries and look for the definition “aesthetics,” you will find the classic definition that “aesthetics is the study of beauty and art.”
There is a question though that has been tossed around by philosophers and art critics for decades: how much should an artist’s intention affect your interpretation of the work?
Do the artist’s plans and motivations affect its meaning? Or is it completely up to the judgment of the viewer?
Listen to artist Giota Vorgia about how her art improves well-being and how her pebbles add therapeutic elements to our inner self, beauty and substance.
