30 everyday aesthetics As manipulations of three-dimensional materials in physical space, many of the first projects are sculptures. ⁴³ In addition to rebelling against the museum and gallery system entrenched in the modern Western artworld, which treats art objects as commodities subject to commerce, these land artists also offered an alternative model for art by inviting us to exercise our sensibility, imagination, and creativity in constructing our own object for aesthetic appreciation. Furthermore, environmental art quite often requires our literal participation through bodily engagement, as well as the ‘‘lower senses’’ of touch and smell.

Characteristics of paradigmatic art a. Frame One feature of paradigmatic art is that its ingredients are more or less determined, primarily according to conventional expectations and the artist’s control of the material. ²⁴ Its smell of fresh paint, its relationship to the surrounding wallpaper, the back of the canvas, and its upside down view, no matter how intriguing, are to be intentionally bracketed. Our experience of a symphony consists of the sounds conforming to the score created by the musicians on the stage.

These environmental artworks thus do away with various restrictive characteristics of paradigmatic art; instead, they share more features in common with objects and activities outside the realm of paradigmatic art. This consideration provides a prima facie case for defending an art-centered approach to aesthetics by showing how its restrictive nature can be easily overcome by enlarging the realm of art. b. Art of the everyday Another example of contemporary art that challenges conventional artworld framework is those objects and performances that simulate or are situated in our everyday life.
