Aesthetics Theories

Using the articles from the textbook, how have you developed your own theory of aesthetics?
To ensure a working knowledge of aesthetics, how will you transform theory into practice with your own artistic endeavours(film and photography?)

Your answers should be comprehensive and extrapolative of the textbook content. There is no word limit for your answers, but a good metric is ~850+ words (total) to sufficiently answer both questions.

You may only use information found in the included textbook.
