That's like saying Jackson Pollack isn't art because it's just random dripping. Sorry if you don't think it's art, but that doesn't make it not art.
Jackson Pollack used dripping to paint a picture. He applied the drips in a pattern to evoke images or emotion as intended. That 'control' of the medium makes it art.

That's silly - you have to change the sign every election.

I figured it was like the "Jesse White Memorial DMV" or something, but they ran out of room for letters.

I disagree art can, but does not have to get any point across or mean anything. It also doesn't need to be "pretty" or be hard to make, or be liked by anybody.

But that's just my opinion, because the only thing art absolutely is, is stick fiddling subjective.
'Subjective' is not a catch all term that anything can hide inside.

Your vision is too narrow.

What artistic tradition is the art coming from? I don't know much about the visual arts, but, Like, if you're a literary modernist, you're going out of your to use symbolism and stuff to try to convey your intended meaning. If you're a post-modernist, you write your story however you want and let the reader do with it what they will. Lots of art (not all of it) just needs some context to enable people to make sense of it.

Flicking a brush around to make vomit-like projectile stains is not 'control' anymore than letting FedEx break your glass. They both are allowing randomness into the design.

freaky deaky pentagon "drone swarm" exercise

it's a whole ton of drones that use distributed computing, sharing processing; they can easily adapt to losing or gaining individual drones and can decide on the best way to carry out their mission

Long ago, I made this in, what I like to think as, a Pollock kind of way. I threw things at it until... it "spoke to me", know what I mean? Some of the things I threw at it are deliberate, some are random.

Sometimes I do that for a while, but I don't always get a result I like. And I rarely show those things to anybody.

Don't call me an artist. I wouldn't dare calling myself that. The most I'd say is, look at this thing I made. :shrug:

That's about 1000x more interesting than any Jackson Pollock. But so is TV snow (which is hard to find nowadays...it's the signal from the background radiation of the Big Bang...and it does have patterns in it).

...allowing randomness...

There you go. It is an artifice, we can shorten to "art".
