"Interesting...maybe our discussions throughout the two months have been
college professors" (of art?)...
You must remember that many of these professors have been away from the
on their doctoral theses. Unfortunately, these degrees are based on
"oral" and "written"
examinations with much reading and writing; not on art production! It is
natural that the shoe boxes they have filled with all those "frames of
references" will have to eventually end up in curriculum guides, text
books, and class lectures. It is far easier to talk about art than it is
to produce it.
