Art requires some cleverness to get a point or points across. That's just random damage from shipping.

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.


sorry, if it doesn't employ cleverness to get a point across it's just not art

Your vision is too narrow.


apologies ... i was being utterly sarcastic, that definition is unbelievably wrong

as an artist i can only shake my head in pity for anyone who thinks that way

Damn that lack of a sarcasm font. Again.

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 is one way to produce art.

Allowing the fed ed broken glass thing to occur is another.

You may not care for the art, (I don't care much for it), but it is art all the same. get the fiddlesticks over it.

Hang on there: "REAL vampires"? :lol: C'mon, for site which is literally named "I-Fucking-Love-SCIENCE" they should have edited that to something like "just like vampires from stories like 'Dracula'."

Another possible assisting explanation: human blood has become so fatty that it is now a viable alternative for these "fussy" bats which would avoid most mammalian blood sources like cattle because of their relatively low fat content compared to their preferred sources of bird blood.

Exactly. It's just bad art but it's still a creative idea to put into practice: using modern living as your paintbrush.

Anyways, I expect some rich dumbass will pay a fortune for it.

Isn't that technically dynamite fishing?
Not with a bottle rocket, not enough concussion to stun a fish.
I've done similar in my youth. Twas fun

'Allowing' is not the same thing as 'causing'. No control over the result means its not art. Randomness is not art.

Yeah, that site's offerings have gotten much less technically accurate, at least in the titles, for a while now. I think they're trying to compete on a click bait basis.

Bzzt! Wrong.

What makes something art is that there is an artist and an audience and a work. Its really that simple.
I think we'll just have to disagree on what makes it art.

Imagination. Besides the structure of an artist, a work and an audience, there is nothing else to it. There's no essence of art floating about, there's no scale scientists developed to measure skill or creativity, there's just the frame and imagination.

as has been pointed out, this argument has been had here before ... let me suggest letting it die because even though it shouldn't be an argument at all, there's absolutely no hope that you can win
