Everything becomes nothing?

November 18, 2007

When describing art as having the potential of being anything, by defining it as an interaction between an observer and an observed, one is met with a statement:

“If everything can be art, then nothing is art.”

Funny enough this has its roots, well at least for today, in The Incredibles, the Pixar animated film, where the villian’s plan is to make everyone a superhero so that no one is. Well I do not take any belief in this. First, I believe that we can all be superheroes and when we all are, then the world will be a better place.

Second and more importantly, everything has the potential of becoming art; everything is not just simply art. Therefore I will state now loud and clear:

EVERYTHING CAN BE ART.

And still we will have art. Thoughts?
