Suggesting the same philosophical flaw does more harm than good, this

chapter uses theories associated with a sense of place to highlight the

shortcomings, particularly those created by a dependence on universal

truth, in the studio and in practice. Constructing an entirely different

basis from which to understand aesthetic experience unlocks a major

part of the debate, the trick, once again, is to disengage aesthetics from

the primitive bodily ways of knowing, disentangle it from psychology

and use a fresh, common-sense approach to bring materiality back into

the picture.
