The purpose of art is to impart the sensation of things as they are perceived and not as they are known. The technique of art is to make techniqur ‘unfamiliar’, to make forms difficult, to increase the difficulty and length of perception because the process of perception is an ar end in itself and must be prolonged.

Jan 22, David Galloway rated it really liked it Shelves: An excellent essay that centers on the technique of defamiliarization, how artists make everyday things feel new again. Shklovsky provides several examples from the work of Tolstoy and I believe he proves his point of contention quite well.

`Art as Technique` (1917) Viktor Shklovsky
The argument cleverly begins techniuqe quoting the still accepted maxim that poetry is economy of imagery, allowing the reader to consume big feelings or ideas in a small amount of space.
But Shklovsky then notes how habitual thinking or non-thinkingepitomized in algebraic symbolism, dulls our sensory experience. It allows us to glide unquestioningly over axioms.
Instead the piece claims art defamiliarizes: They offer new, unique ways of looking at things. Our joy comes from this scenic ride to familiar places, rather than the boring highway that normal communication entails. In the Formalist vein, the miracle here is in the ride, not the destination. Shklovsky then demonstrates his point with the works of Tolstoy and popular erotica, where the former describes events as if he saw them for the first time, and the latter utilizes euphemism and figurative language to heighten our expectation of pleasure.

Have read before but now am able to appreciate it as a work of Art in itself.
Inductive, Concise and ofcourse Unique. De-familiarization isn’t a new concept but its put in a new way in this text thus a pioneer text of formalism and structuralism.
