What happens in the frenzied moment of practice between the artist and the artwork? We can capture the artist’s movements on camera, or describe the possible set of decisions made in relation to a work, but can we really theorize the creative process? And why might we want to? Barbara Bolt tackles these questions and more in this groundbreaking analysis of the nature of art and art-making. Refuting the assumption that art is a representational practice, Bolt’s striking new argument, goes on to ask how the idea of ’embodied’ practice fares within the post-medium culture of conceptual and virtual art. pp. x, 209 140715
