Vital Beauty

Reclaiming Aesthetics in the Tangle of Technology and Nature

Edited by Joke Brouwer, Arjen Mulder, Lars Spuybroek. Text by Thierry Bardini, Joke Brouwer, Gustav Fechner, Mark Frost, George Gessert, Tim Ingold, Arjen Mulder, John Ruskin, Daniel N. Stern, Lars Spuybroek, Caroline Van Eck, Wendy Steiner.

Featured images, "Bearded iris hybrid 346" (2004), is reproduced from <i>Vital Beauty</I>. The editors write, "George Gessert has been breeding hybrids of bearded irises, Pacifica irises, Oriental poppies, California poppies, corn poppies and streptocarpuses for decades as a form of bio art. In this book, he has permitted us to use his photographs of some of his most beautiful cultivars."As defined by the great art writer John Ruskin more than 150 years ago, “vital beauty” denotes an aesthetic of “sympathies”--that is, a beauty that embodies and demonstrates affinity with sentience in all its forms. Ruskin effectively liberated beauty from classical perfectionism by envisaging a world of currents and forces, rather than immobile ideals, and by celebrating nature’s abundant diversity. Today, this wonderful conception requires some rethinking, since sentience now encompasses technological as well as organic entities--raising the question of how we should design our environments, our objects and even our lives. In Vital Beauty, leading philosophers, anthropologists, theorists and artists Thierry Bardini, Joke Brouwer, Gustav Fechner, Mark Frost, George Gessert, Tim Ingold, Arjen Mulder, Daniel N. Stern, Lars Spuybroek, Caroline Van Eck, Wendy Steiner and Ruskin himself examine what this idea of beauty might mean for their respective disciplines.
