That is why you listen to music, why you read books, why you watch movies or look through sweet drawings. You want to see something that will influence your emotions or your ideas. Even the most horrible art can influence someone, negatively or positively.
You don't need to think too hard on this guys...
As a creator or viewer? And is it the process of creating said inspirational object, the object, or the emotion it conveys? Which of these aspects is the "art?"

*You can consider music a form of art as someone is expressing feelings through voice and stating an opinion based on their perception of reality.
*You can consider sculpture art as it is also a form of one's perception through reality and is tangible for others as well as visual.
*Metallurgy is a form of art in a way for the same reasons as sculpture.
*Manga is art as it can give you the reading sensation through one's writing based on their ethics and opinions.
*Cooking is a gray area of art as it takes perfection and modification of certain recipies to attain a taste that is flavorful to their extrema.
*Even the use of timed electric shocks from Tesla coils can be considered art.
The depth the artist goes determines the reality of everything portrayed.
