I dunno, I think the reaction reflects modern society's tendency to be fed up with the same rehashed questions. That which we can quickly answer, we already have. That which we cannot, we've already heard. In this day of technology and information, where our voices are drowned out by sheer data, sometimes the only way to be heard is to let out a piercing "ree".

The "ree" will be put down as the word of our generation.

it has a similar meaning to skill, so an artwork would be something made with skill.

why do people think they're clever for pretending a word has no meaning and then asking what things you should use that word to describe? if a 3 year old was pointing at every object in the room and asking whether they were cats you'd tell them to stop being silly.

something constructed by a human purposely that has no practical value other than entertainment.

>>2290267
Objectively? Whatever makes people with no art knowledge go "woo"

That's the harsh truth

but video games falls under entertainment

something constructed by humans for the purpose of entertainment that you don't interact with physically, how's that.

I can see a chef making art when he does an incredible dish and displays great knowledge. Food has a practical value. The most practical of them all we could say.

Same goes for a high tier woodworker. You can have both practicality and artistic merit, so I think that's flawed.
>>
>>2290724
I think food and games and furniture can be constructed artistically but the fact that it serves a function overrides it being only art. so there are things that are purely art like a physical model/painting, and things that can be both, it's all in the purpose involved in the construction process.
cutting a piece of meat into a square and serving it equals a porduct that purely practical, not art.
crafting a robot shaped cake and serving it equals something that is made mostly for the purpose of entertaining with the consumption of food being a tersiary purpose, making it mostly art.

that is an artifact

not art

art is a perception, not a product
>>
>>2290738
that's wrong, most things that are artifacts were constructed for a practical purposes. money, weapons, spears, etc.
the difference between an egyptian painting artifact and an egyptian spear artifact is the intent of it's construction.
one was constructed to be entertainment and one was constructed for practical use.
one is art and one is not.
does it really have to be more complicated than that?
>>
>>2290731
Yeah but a painting serves the purpose of decoration too at this point. 99.9% of the people who buy a framed painting do it to fill the space on their walls, not to observe art.
>>
>>2290761
true, that's why what's considered art should be determined by why it's constructed. you can use the painting of the mona lisa as a dart board but that wasn't the intent of it's design.

An excuse to create stupid and pointless shit for money

BABY DONT HURT ME

art is to entertain and intrest the viewer as well as excite the person making it because they are expressing things in a way they want to see it done.
>>
>>2290267
the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
