IDEAS

After placing the art you are viewing on a timeline, the next step is to build up a sense of time and place that is specific to the artwork and artist.

  • Did the artists have friends or contemporaries that may have influenced the style of the work?
  • Did the artist have a teacher?
  • Did the artist write about their work?
  • What materials were available to the artist?
  • Was the artist male or female?
  • Might race or other specifics of the artists' identity play a role?
  • Did the artwork get shown in public? What were the reactions of the first viewers?

Daniel Kahneman believes there are two systems for organizing and filtering knowledge: 

  • System one is real-time. This system makes judgments and decisions before our mental apparatus can consciously catch up. 
  • System two, on the other hand, is a slow process of thinking based on critical examination of evidence. Konnikova refers to these as System Watson and System Holmes.

To move from a System Watson- to a System Holmes-governed thinking takes mindfulness plus motivation.
