ZHU The ultimate aim of artistic exploration is to explore the claim that objects are different from experience and beauty is just a by-product of the exploration. In other words, the truth in the eyes of each person may quite literarly not be the same. A typical example is that some art archaeologists attribute the artistic achievements of Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cezanne to their eye diseases.1 Saying this, however, is somewhat unreliable--just like we could not arbitrarily say that the world in the eyes of animals, who have a completely different physciological and optic nerve structure, is quite diferent from that of humans. This indicates that differences in the visual apparatus influence the viewing body's mastery of the "contents" of the objects being viewed. Differences in visual apparatus will bring forth differences in the mastery of "content." According to Edmund Husserl, "the object is not only the gathering or compounding of `contents.' Actually, an object is more than its contents."2 The viewed object does not only refer to the "objectivity" of objects but also to other matters, such as a piece of color block, a shape, and even a kind of feeling.
