Abstract

The study explores the interplay of auditory and visual techniques of perception in art. To explore this connection, the hermeneutic circle under the phenomenology of Heidegger was utilized in reading three artworks of Sir Levi Yu. The experience with the artworks were dissected and reconstructed in order to arrive at a synthesis. The dynamics in experiencing the artworks demonstrates Heidegger’s claim that emotions cannot be universalized; thus, this study presents an interpretative horizon of an artist reading another artist’s work.
