    Default N/S preference in Art

    Hello Everyone,

    I would like to discuss a theory that I've been mulling over regarding the N/S preferences in art (music, literature, visual oriented etc.) My theory is that the difference between N art and S art is like the difference between the artisan and the artist. S art in general focuses on the style, aesthetic, details, and presentation. It tends to be oriented toward perfecting an existing form. Meanwhile, N art tends to focus on meaning, concepts, the big picture, and the "out-of-the-box". I'm aware that there are many exceptions, and I'm just discussing the general guidelines. What do you people think?

    S vs N is just a line.

    Comparing the Se-Ni spectrum to its Ne-Si counterpart would potentially yield a better picture of the dynamics at play.

    No. What the fuck would art even be without meaning?

    Sometimes art does not have a meaning. Sometimes it just is.

    What art do you think doesn't have meaning? I disagree with you, by the way. Art not having meaning is impossible. Obscurity has meaning.

    There are artists who make their piece and say their art has no meaning. Professional ones.

    Does every doodle you make out of boredom have meaning?

    I'd really encourage you to read up on dadaism and surrealism in its historical context. Art without meaning can represent the meaninglessness and absurdity of life. An artist who says their art has no meaning has created meaningful art because it lacks meaning. Audiences who view art project their own meaning onto it, by virtue of being human.

    To be honest these two tags you added after I replied are so shitty as to be comedic, given the fact that it's actually you who's incapable of understanding paradox in this context.

    Lol

    So do your doodles have meaning?

    Quit being oversensitive. They're light and you know I love sensors.

    It doesn't need a meaning to start off with, sometimes the meaning comes after the art is made. I mean just look at what the art critics do when they analyse a piece of art. Look at how many essays, dissertations and theses there are on a certain urinal with "R. Mutt" written on it, for example.

    What there is though is purpose driving the creation of art, there's purpose behind even the most random pieces of art.
