What the heck is art? Part 2

What now seems like long ago we started out by asking-
What the heck is art?


Ernst Billgren in his book What Is Art and 100 other very important questions answers it this way-


What is art?

Short answer:A question.
Long answer: Just as a physicist is a collection of atoms trying to discern what an atom is, so art is an invention that aims to discover what art is.


Heh.
