I believe any Philosophy of art should be as broad as possible:

  1. Art is the creation or participation in an experience that does not directly serve the four essentials (shelter, security, sustenance, sex).

  2. Art is an intrinsic part of life as a human that only be controlled by some sort of tyranny, including definition, explanation, or criticism.

If you wonder what I mean by the Tyranny of Definition, I can guarantee the first part of my thesis of what art is would anger architects, martial artists, chefs and adult entertainers- all of whose efforts I value with varying levels of enthusiasm.
