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?
