# I agree wholeheartedly
I was in an art gallery in Dublin yesterday. I had to leave when I was overheard asking my girlfriend "how does a pile of fucking sacks with a light shining on them constitute art?" by the nobber of a curator.

# the fact that it raised your emotional level
to some people, would define it as art.

# im with the others
By its original and broadest definition, art (from the Latin ars, meaning "skill" or "craft") is the product or process of the effective application of a body of knowledge, most often using a set of skills; this meaning is preserved in such phrases as "liberal arts" and "martial arts". However, in the modern use of the word, which rose to prominence after 1750, “art” is commonly understood to be skill used to produce an aesthetic result (Hatcher, 1999)

# if they used some skill to create it
thats my definition which makes all the cap on this board art as people hav esom skill with photoshop. its art but art doesnt make it good.
now good thats something only the beholder can decide the word art means nothing now thanks to picasso and whorehole who added opinion
of the veiwer to the equasion by putting imagination into art. making the term means the artist doesnt slavishly recreate or represent.
now artists have to have an imagination or in the case of some sacks with a light on or a pile of bricks an opinion. perhaps im wrong perhaps this should be on the talk board.
i would go on talk but they mock me and send me back here.

# But to most people
Art takes skill.

Saying, 'Your dog's dead.' raises emotional levels.
Art? Actually, yeah, that would be art.

That's something for the newsletter. Go round telling people their pet or whatever is dead. It's okay because it's art.

# I bet there is some arse at Edinburgh doing just that & calling it art
of course killing the pet with a lump hammer and projecting this over the corpse of the owner as a n installation would get you plaudits and a grant.

# what a cunt
that is a legitimate piece of art critique.

He should have engaged you in a dialogue about the relative merits of the abstract and realist schools of modern art.

But the art-nazi just threw you out!

# Fantastic
I have grown to hate the Da Vinci Code soooooo much. If they'd just had the book and left it at that, I wouldn't mind so much, but it bacame such an obsession that everyone jumped on the bandwagon. Grr.

# ^ this
And people are actually believing it, even though it's a work of fiction and most of its claims are old and already disproved.
