Pan-cultural, Trans-historical, Art-relational: Power Point’sClip Art Throughout his short but expansive career, Power Point has been invested in visual objects or experiences he consciously creates through an expression of skill or imagination. His practice encompasses diverse media such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, decorative arts, photography, and installation. Point’s oeuvre exists within a continuum that ranges from purely aesthetic purposes at one end to purely utilitarian purposes at the other. However, this should by no means be taken as a rigid scheme, particularly in our culture in which everyday objects are painstakingly constructed and imbued with meaning. Some conventionalist interpretations of Point’s work focus on its institutional features, those properties that depend on their relations to art history, art genres, etc. The less conventionalist approach makes use of a broader, more traditional concept of aesthetic properties that includes more than art-relational ones, and focuses on the work’s pan-cultural and trans-historical characteristics.
