Episode 104: conceptual value
In episode 104, Ann and Ben continue their conversation about value but turn toward artistic value rather than monetary value. Both Ann and Ben describe their own systems for evaluating a work of art. Ben’s system centers on reverse engineering a work and looking at the decisions made at each step. Ann’s system is a long and wide-ranging list of questions that get filed into emotional impact and visual impact. All of which is to say, there is no right or wrong way to approach a work of art.
