Buttons: Memory, Mindfulness and the Work of Art (pp. 163-182) $100.00
Authors:  (Patricia Trutty-Coohill, Department of Art History, Siena College, New York, USA)
Art, artfulness and aesthetics might at first seem distant from the various
scientific fields of psychology and the caring activities of social work. This
study [2] shows that art, and our attunement to it, can reveal aspects of our
most fundamental relationships, relationships taken for granted because they
are so distant from our professional and academic lives, so obvious and,
especially, so unquantifiable. Despite its indirectness, the work of art most
efficiently takes us into the heart of matters moving us with human music [3].
This paper explores that human music through an analysis of a student project
on grief and memory, keyed on the buttons her grandmother left her.
Phenomenological analysis shows that her processes paralleled those of
mindfulness practice [4]. Then, calling to mind Proust‘s discussions of the
relationship between memory and art, the discussion turns toward art and how
it heals.
