dc.descriptionIncludes descriptive metadata provided by producer MP4 file: "Thinking Out of the Lunch Box - Video - Prof. Marilyn Murphy: 'Air and Dreams.'" By Vanderbilt University. Artists continue to find inspiration in the thoughts of French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, whose books Air and Dreams and The Poetics of Space encourage different ways of finding mystery in the everyday world. But is Bachelard's work from the mid-twentieth century influential? Or has he simply recognized important metaphors that have been present in art since the Surrealists started to mine their dream worlds in the 1920s? The lecture will include the work of several contemporary Nashville artists with national reputations that, in part, relate to Bachelard's work.en
