abstract concepts: my definitions of art and craft

icon: "writing (a relief carving of Seshat, overlaid with my fractal "Colorflight")"


art:
a unique (not mass-produced) creation made as an aware expression of self or observation of that which is outside oneself. Awareness is necessary for art to be good; regurgitating societal norms without change or critique is not art, it's propaganda.

craft:
a unique (not mass-produced) creation made to be used in some practical manner. Some crafts are art, some are not.
