The potential of the window in 'framing' landscape meaning
Franz, Jill M. (2005) The potential of the window in 'framing' landscape meaning. IDEA Journal, 2005, pp. 85-95.
In this paper a preliminary report on the study of landscape meaning and how it is shaped, expressed and so on by windows is described. Landscape is conveyed as being understood in at least four different ways: perceptually, politically, experientially and existentially. The framing quality of windows is shown to be complicit in these understandings. Using a contextual and inter-textual approach, a case for the consideration of the philosophical possibility of framing is presented. Through the model of linguisticality used in a hermeneutic way in this study, it is shown that 'aesthetic experience is not a solitary monologue... but an integral part of a shared discourse concerning the realisation of meaning' (Heywood & Sandywell, 1999, p. 10).
