    I think it's pretty damn obvious I was being sarcastic, Bacon. With a hint of passive aggressiveness thrown in for good measure.

    I do not know you on a personal enough level for that to work well in a text based discussion. Sorry.

    I call it many names. The two that seem to be most accurate tho are "Hell" and "Work".

    To me art is effort first and foremost. You can not have art with out expending some form of effort to make and or find it. Anything can be considered art in my opinion from technology to makeup and the traditional artistic mediums and everything in between.
    A person goes through the effort of making something not always with a specific end goal in mind so who is anyone to say that they are wrong and it is not art?
    Yes you have every right to say that the final result is not to your liking but you can not take away the fact that it was created and art is creation. Some people have no clue what they are making but in the end it is aesthetically pleasing to them and many others but it will never be loved by everyone. When you add skill intent and thought to effort is when the masterpieces are born. That isint to say that a masterpiece can be created or recognized so easily though.

    In the end what does it matter? If there was a true definition to what art is was and will be would it change envy thing? I don't think so because people will create as they please regardless of what anyone thinks.

    There is literally a whole branch of philosophy devoted to this question.

    It is the worst question.

    EDIT: Less flippantly, art is life, life is art, both are God, and God is neither.

    Isn't aesthetics more about what is beauty as opposed to art? Or do I misunderstand?
