According to Hegel, there are three components that go into a successful work of art: the thesis, the antithesis, and the synthesis. In simpler terms, it means chaos and serenity combine to create unity in a work. This also means utilizing the soul (the thesis) and the real world (the antithesis) to create the product (the synthesis).

Adorno’s ideas on aesthetics combined Immanuel Kant’s notion of the existence of “high art,” Georg Hegel’s concept of art requiring intellectual import and Karl Marx’s idea that art must have some amount of embeddedness in society and put these thoughts together into what he referred to as “the social antithesis of society.” He means this insofar as art’s resolution can only be understood if society transformed as a whole to comprehend it.

When I think of what my bed would be, I immediately thought of my posters. They are what I associate with being home, being comfortable. So this work is how I would express my room, my bed.
