As humans evolve, the term art seems to expand further and further to include practically anything. In it’s most fundamental state, art can be considered every living and non-living thing in the universe.
Moreover, it becomes an individual preference.
To me, art must inspire. It must take me to a place inside myself that nothing else can touch. It must consume my mind in a way that creative thoughts begin to stir, unprovoked.
Architecture is one of the most interesting forms of art because there is so much debate over functionality versus innovation. Often buildings created for the sole purpose of function are considered, “bad architecture.”
If this is consider art…
Why are we reluctant to call this art?
Is art defined by the amount of time put into something? It is the thought behind it? Is it how good you are at explaining it? Or is it simply the way it makes you feel?
Imagine your favorite work of art. For most, you have no idea how long it took, the thought behind it, nor have ever heard a explanation for it. Yet, I guarantee you can tell anyone how it makes you feel.
With that in mind, I guess you could say art, or finding beauty in practically anything, is our most inexhaustible resource.
