What distinguishes art from non-art? Possession of:
Artistic intent – it is earnest and descriptive; if it is persuasive then it’s propaganda, if commentary – parody
Handcrafting – if not it’s manufacture
Uniqueness – else it is craft
Lack of utility – otherwise it is design
Self-containment – if it is place-specific then it is mere decoration
Timelessness – if it is merely topical then it’s journalism
Expressiveness – if it does not convey emotion then it is literature
