This study expands the concept of dialogic ethics to include art as an instrument of establishing intersubjective presence, which leads to the cultivation of true community. Within this context the author draws primarily from Robert Gibbs' Why Ethics? to interrogate dialogic ethics, "dialogue" taken to refer to intersubjective presence as opposed to being strictly confined to speech acts. The author invokes Martin Buber, Alfred Gell, and Susanne Langer among others to flesh out the idea of art as dialogic instrument. The author adopts an art-based inquiry approach, including in this paper, as such, photographs, reproductions of works of art, and poetry to expand upon the argument.
