Danger! Art Ahead!

I see art in everything. A new car, rusting bolts sticking out of a concrete overpass, the movements of a body while dancing, all of it is art.

Defining art is like sticking our head in a bucket of rattlesnakes and guessing which one will strike first, even when you're right, you're wrong. But I will take the plunge and say everything is art. Everything a person can hear, see, smell, touch, taste, or sense is art. This can lead us to some pretty weird places (and gross places) but somewhere along the way it is art.

Now beauty on the other hand is a whole different ballpark. I will stick to art and hope beauty hitches a ride.
