After reading the chapters there are four roles of an artist and they are: 1. To help us see the world in new and innovative ways; 2. Create a visual record of their time and place; 3. The will make objects functional, and structures more pleasurable by imbuing them with beauty and meaning; 4. They give form to the immaterial ideas and feelings. To me Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory gives us two of the four. One is the way to create a visual record of their time and place in the most literal since. It also gives us functional objects and structure a more pleasurable beauty my imbuing them with beauty and meaning. The barren yet beautiful landscape tells us that he is feeling lost yet he can see the beauty in the fact that being lost can lead to new places or ideas. Also, that time is slipping away and yet we must watch out pace, for to miss the little things will make our lives meaningless. I have always loved this peace, and there are times when getting lost in it is good for the soul. Escher’s
