The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living

You’ve got to hand it to Hirst. He does come up with some really catchy titles for his… thingies. Britain’s richest living artist…

Whether we like it or not, we live in a post-modern world. But the question is, “What’s art?”

What is the definition of art? And who can define it? Does art have something to do with the means we use to express our beliefs? Is art about how or why? Or what?

Is it enough for the artist to call a dead shark “art” for it to be art?

  1. I feel that art is the creative manifestation of perception and so Hirst can create art by making something, or anything, that he can represent his views through. However I also believe that art can also be something that we can find meaning in, such as in Anish Kapoor’s work, where he leaves a lot of meaning undiscovered so that the meaning creates itself with the observer.
