I like joining art collectives on the last day of a project.  The parties are great, it pads my visual art CV, and I don't have to hang out with the underbathed for too long.

It's art. It might not be very good art in you opinion, but someone made it for an artistic purpose. That's all art takes. As for collectives, didn't Warhol have a bunch of people help him crank out readymades, or am I remembering that wrong?

Judging from the expression on its face, that is a distinct possibility.

The Rabbits final thoughts:

And what's this thing coming toward me very fast? So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like 'Ow', 'Ownge', 'Round', 'Ground'! That's it! Ground! Ha! I wonder if it'll be friends with me? Hello, Ground!

That must have been it, though I recall it was a boring VHS so I taped over it with some SG-1 eps.

I live in a farking suburb.  Our yard is overrun by rabbits.  They eat everything wifey demands we plant in the yard. I installed rabbit proof fencing, but they are tenacious bastards and eventually find a new way to get in, then I have to find the farking hole, repair, replant, then the whole farking process starts over. Wifey won't let me sit out at night with a bottle of gin and a gun (besides, I'm a pacifist anyway, so the gun is just a fantasy, but as I'm ready to snap on a whole heap of shiat, who knows....).  So instead, I just stay inside, drink the gin, and curse my farking lot in life, and wonder how many jack rabbits are laughing their asses off at my situation.  Perhaps, if I construct and place a giant dead bunny out back, it will send a message to the bastard real bunnies that they're at the home of a monster who slays giant bunnies in his spare time and that it might be best to stay the fark out of my yard????

crap.  sorry.

but, saying it's art because it was made for an artistic purpose is a rather circular explanation.

I like to posit some sort of aspiration towards the statement of a truth through an aesthetically reactive medium.  but, still not a good description.

this bunny appears to be, 'hey lets get some laughs'.  i've yet to see any real aspiration here.  and the aspiration i can create is all contrived, not intrinsic.  what, some kind of a pedestrian statement on mortality?   boringville.  not aspiring, nor inspiring, despite making a statement.  nothing uniquely pointing towards some truth but the banal statement that shiat dies, decays, and here's a laugh.

and the artist, whether singular or plural, is immaterial.  otherwise you couldn't say a symphonic production was art.  the creation is all that matters.  I only addressed "artist collective" in a categorical sense.  an "artist" should be one who creates "art". logically, one would assume an "artist collective" would be a group of "artists" who create "art" together.  but, sometimes, words are misleading. For example, "artisan" does not mean person who makes "art", it more appropriately means someone who creates certain stuffs that are practical and are made with a concern for appearances.  So, maybe "artist collective" is actually modified away from "artist" just like "artisan".  and with a collective, you just really have some goofballs up to goofing around.

/ warhol did not create my favorite "art".
// still don't konw what "art" means.  and for the most part, don't care.  but, i love words, so i, every time i try to get out, "art" pulls me back in.

Well, that sounds like you think it's bad art. Which is fine, but an opinion. I once saw a picture of an art installation that consisted of a panel truck tipped over on a sidewalk. That's it. They had to put up a sign to get people to stop calling 911. Now that's some shiatty art. It's so bad that people can't even distinguish it as an artistic expression without the sign. I have no clue what the artist was getting at, and I think it's probably ridiculous, but it's still art.

Bad art is art, but that doesn't make it not bad. Art is pretty much any outward expression of an idea, thought, emotion, etc. Unfortunately, that leaves a lot of room for a lot of weirdoes to go "look at my horrible art!"
