Art as Process

Art as process…Robert Morris’ felt sculptures.
Jasper Johns’ process-led works such as hand-prints, marks, drips etc.

But what if we consider ‘art’ to be the process by which we make meaning of the work? This would shift emphasis from the making of the work ( often associated with industrial production and serial process), to the understanding of the artwork – i.e., the ‘art’ is transferred from ‘producer’ of object to ‘producer’ of reading – Barthes, Owens etc.

But what does ‘art’ as ‘process’ really mean?
