art is perception (perception is art?)

These are some of my favorite art pieces.

While each piece is different, they are all, undoubtedly, considered a r t.  At least, it has been commonly agreed upon that they are pieces of art work.  Although, I am certain that some people would not like to consider these pieces of art.  Maybe not because they don't particularly like them, but just because they do not fit into their personal definition of art.

And that's okay.  

Art should be questioned.  If everyone found beauty or admiration in the same things, what a boring world we would live in.  Art is made to be interpreted.  Or loved.  Even hated.  It is made to evoke emotions and to cause a change in our perceptions.
If art is so malleable based upon who is observing it, than absolutely something that someone created can be considered art by another.  Even if the creator does not consider her/himself an artist.

In not being able to define art, I would say that creates a definition in itself.

Wouldn't you agree?
