Poetry Friday Word for Tomorrow…ars gratia artis…raowr….

Rob Helpy-Chalk has posited in a recent post that the highest forms of art are film and pure mathematics, while the lowest forms of art are collage, haiku, and pornography.

What do you think? What is art? What is good art, what is bad?

The Poetry Friday WORD for tomorrow is ART. Feel free to explore the concept of art in whatever creative (artful) form moves your hands to action…poem, story, photo, song…or any of the art forms that Rob mentioned. (Someone should write a haiku about collages and porn.)

Make some art…critique some art…celebrate some, denigrate some, roll in some and see what sticks to your fur.

I leave you with what was stuck in head this morning upon awakening...actually it was the last line..."and a baby's arm holding an apple"...damn I love The Tubes. And Magritte.

Math is a science, not an art. But I can understand how it could be classified as an art. Everything can be described using math, from a drop of water falling to a satellites orbit.
I think the female form is more beautiful than any art ever created by humans, but I also understand how porn could be classified as one of the lowest forms of art. It's like a corruption of beauty.
This is a very cool post.
I got here from Mindys blog, "All Things New"
