Without our senses we are dependent on our references, without references
we rely on our senses.
Our chosen theme for this body of work the Love of Looking, does not attempt
to give prominence to any of the human senses. This would be unwise given
that many of us are aware of extraordinary people who have been for one
reason or another deprived of one of their senses. We only seek to examine
the complexities of Looking that is, the varying levels of social interaction
involved in Looking. Within the following pages we will deliver individualized
understandings of the concept of Looking and the
Love of Looking.
These literary contributions are coupled with artistic perspectives of the
concept allowing the theme to be presented over the two respective mediums.
The works serve as a localized Bristol based discussion on the chosen concept
for this book. Each offering demonstrates the varying considerations to be
taken into account when discussing the concept of Looking.
