In Ways of Looking: How To Experience Contemporary Art Ossian Ward notes that “More than ever before, looking has become a matter of Darwinian survival – only the strongest images make the grade, and even then we only give a cursory glance to what we think we’re seeing... Much of our culture, infused as it is with the multisensory slap-in-the-face shorthand as our hurried existences, can be difficult to look at or get a grip on.”
