About this paper

Artistic experience can be interpreted as an embodied sensing of frameworks. In artistic constructions of realities, cognitive experience („Erfahrung“) and aesthetic sensing („Erleben“) interfere. Based on an analysis of aesthetic relativity in general, and of the artistic perspective on reality in particular, an artistic form of „sensuous cognition“ can be described: a genuine artistic understanding of the world as a sheaf of intentional coupling and decoupling manifolds, like an sensuous gauge theory of mind in multiple realities. The main gain of this approach can be found in an epistemological practice of a specific kind of artistic research, aiming for embodied and therefore experienced knowledge.
