Art definition on modern society
Art is defined as the outcome of arranging items or situations(generally symbolic) in a way that influence one or more senses leading to an emotional or intellectual reaction. The range of what can be defined as art is infinite. Personally I think that art is what we find beautiful and interesting, something that triggers our imagination.
Art is a matter of taste, some people tend to like quite questionable pieces and others with more refined taste tend to like quite the opposite. The meaning of art is studied by a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics, its also studied by disciplines as history and psychology as a reflection of mankind and that time frame.
If we all(nowadays society) could be defined by the contemporary art, how future generation would see us? I did myself that question for an entire day and I only came out with..future generations will see us as very dull,abstract, sort of minimalistic society. Have you seen modern art nowadays? Just painted colors in a canvas, some lines having absolutely no meaning for others but the artist. What do you think about all this?
