Nonexistent Artforms and the Case of Visual Music

Nonexistent Artforms and the Case of Visual Music

(p.109) 7 Nonexistent Artforms and the Case of Visual Music
Contemplating Art

Jerrold Levinson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This essay has two parts. The first proposes some ways of thinking about the field of nonexistent arts as whole, in effect making some advance inroads into it. The second part tries to cast light on why certain artforms that seem eminently possible in fact fail to exist, through a case study of one such would-be art, that of visual music, i.e., a structured organization of coloured presentations in time, such as might be provided through the medium of colour film.

Keywords:   nonexistent art, visual music, coloured presentations
