Quote by Alfred North Whitehead

Alfred North Whitehead said, “Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience.”

Do you agree?  Why or why not?

  1. I could argue pro or con, but I think the reality is that it’s a two-way street. Experience is the interpretation of patterns which we then express in our art.

  2. Experience gives us the material from which to create art. Whether the result is a pattern depends upon how you define pattern. Some art is amazing because it seems to defy traditional pattern.

  3. Thanks, Zane and Julie. It’s interesting how Whitehead worded it.
