STOP

NOTICE

ASSESS

IMAGINE

LEAVE

This is a method for looking at artwork.

STOP - Mindfully decide to pay attention to the art in front of you. 

NOTICE - Keep finding things you did not notice before. Find new details. Find new details. Find new details. (Everything is inexhaustibly observable.)

ASSESS - Do you like it? How does it make you feel?

IMAGINE - Fantasize extensions of the piece. What would this image look like if it could move? What might it sound like? What visuals could accompany the music? What is the story that is being told (what's the headcanon)? What kind of person would it be, if it became human? What do you wish the sculpture tasted like? 

LEAVE - Mindfully decide to pay attention to something other than the art.
