This week I had an interesting conversation with Shalane about the definition of art. After our conversation we both came up with similar definitions.
Shalane: Art encompasses anything that a person presents (or doesn’t present, if the objective is to keep it hidden) that appeals to any of the senses. This includes things the artist has made, or just selected. I appreciate the broad use of the term art, because art can be presented to its audience through more than simply sight.
Me: Art would be anything that evokes an emotional reaction or adds additional meaning/or just any deeper response to an individual. Broad and subjective.
