Some repetitive details of La Grande Arche de la Défense.
I was going to call this something with the words “abstract art” in it. But I’m not sure if one could call something like this abstract art. Or art. Or abstract.
It’s actually a piece of a building. To be precise, it’s a view of a picture of a piece of a building. Is it abstract? If you know what it is, how can it be abstract? The design might (or might not be) minimalistic, but does that make it abstract? Some people might not see something in it, but does that make it abstract? Some other people might see squares in it, are squares abstract?
Is it art though? This view of a pictures of a piece of a building, is this art? If it was displayed in a photo museum, would this be art? With my artistic (what’s in a name) view, I chose to take a picture of this piece of a building, am I therefore an artist? And thus, is this art? If, by law, I am the author or artist of this picture, is this art?
