We've all heard of it. But do we know what it is? Who decides? Is it like pornography, where we know it when we see it? Or is it not like pornography, because we're supposed to have our clothes on when we look at it? And who is this we?
The point is, art might mean something different to everyone, but according to its guidelines, it seems that Kickstarter will only fund art that Kickstarter agrees is art. But what makes them an expert on what art is? Is it just because they have "art" in letters of their name? If so, then so does "my heart," so why can't my heart decide what art is instead of Kickstarter?
I say it can, with your help! My conceptual art project involves the raising of at least one dollar, which should be enough to buy one envelope and one stamp, which I will use to mail to Kickstarter's physical address, in order to inquire about the nature of art, or at least their definition, as to what qualifies as it, and whether this conceptual art project is indeed conceptual art.
I hope you (and they) help us reveal the answer! Thanks!
