Roy Ascott

Roy Ascott’s article was eye opening as he explained the ideas within Modern Art, stating that it is “fundamentally of a piece, that there is unity in its diversity, and that the quality which unifies it is in distinct contrast to the essential nature of the art which went before it.” He is stating that Modern art, although a diverse group of art, is all unified by the contrast it has to the art that comes before it which makes the art “behavioral” since it is taking old culture and turning into something new. He also states that modern art embraces modern science and technology and has become less descriptive and more purposive which offers a a different perspective to the spectators, as they no longer are set to predetermined ideas.
