What is Situationism?

What is Situationism?

Psychological theory that started in 1968 at the time when the debate on "person-situation" was triggered through a monograph publication by Walter Mischel. It is an approach to art behavior that states that there are no general traits. It holds that behavior is externally influenced by situational factors from environment rather than motivations and internal traits. It thus challenges trait theorists like Raymond B. Cattel and Hans Esyenck. Major movement linked to situationism is "Situationist International" founded by Asger Jorn.

Pen and ink

Pen and ink is a traditional drawing technique using a dip style pen with India ink on paper. The fine tip on the old-fashioned pen is excellent for drawing varied lines and shading details. Some artists use a fountain pen with ink reservoir.

Clay

Clay is earth which is made when rocks weather and finally decompose. It takes a long time for water to carry pieces of earth, creating muck. The muck is collected, cleaned, prepared by removing rocks, and refined by adding sand to make clay.

Inkjet print

An Inkjet printer makes prints by spraying millions of ink dots onto paper. This type of printing is typically not expensive because the ink used is cheaper. Artists can use computers to create art which can be printed out in color using this technology.
