Da Word...

Here are the top three pretentious words I learnt at school this week.

1. Facture
2. Materiality
3. Objecthood

'Facture' means how something is made; line, composition and colour are elements of facture. As nearly as I can tell 'materiality' and 'objecthood' are an object's physical properties. These are terms used to describe art works or handicrafts; ostensibly anything that has been made.

This week 'Da Word' is brought to you by the good people of the Art History department.

The University of Melbourne™ ... Wankerfying the elite and the bourgeoisie since 1854.
