Duke University Press release of ART AS INFORMATION ECOLOGY by Jason A. Hoelscher/October 2021 is a welcome addition to the subject of Art Systems.
In the review of Hoelscher's book in Fifth Season Magazine/Winter2022 REVIEW Issue, editor Nohra Corredor invites audiences to consider the background conceptual approach to artworks, artworlds and complex systems aesthetics addressed by Hoelscher.
The forthcoming book review entitled
The Birth of a QUESTION in the Age of Infinite Categories
brings to mind Walter Benjamin's 1936 German essay "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction". Here Benjamin offers the insight that the allegorist extracts elements from life or art, isolating them from their function there, and then combines them into a new work of art (Ann Gibson, 1996).
