Plato’s Mimetic Theory of Art(RS 25)

Have a look at this powerpoint file here. Wikipedia additional terms needed to answer the following:

Given that what we experience of reality is merely a simulation in our minds, then all art is a simulation of a simulation.

Is art useless?

In our engineered age, an age of HDTV, megapixels images, colour laser printers, virtual reality, 3D games, are we moving toward or away from art forms that Plato would consider more useful?

What is the future of art?

Can a form of communication, art, be enhanced to the point that it is no more than a mirror of reality?

If art is supposed to mirror reality, wouldn’t a mirror be the cheaper way to go?

Mirrors, we’ve talked about mirrors. Hmmm.

Trackback here.
