A case for conscientious artistic remediation and interpretation

Deliberate conscientiousness in our experience with works of art is a crucial paradigm adjustment, as Algee-Hewitt emphasizes that remediation is “an ongoing process that is unavoidable” if the relevance of a work is to survive the test of time. It is vital, therefore, to consider the influence of the medium and the era when approaching a work of art. Creative works are ephemeral and beautiful in their temporality, and the fluidity of meaning is what makes art ageless and universally applicable.
