What exactly is art? Let’s not dig into the academic definition of art because there is always an easier way to spot it ... well, anything inside the museum on display is supposed to be a piece of art, right?
As long as the piece on display is not a part of someone’s prank or experiment:
In a social experiment, Jack Sim, the founder of the World Toilet Organization, spotted an empty exhibit display in the National Gallery Singapore last week and decided to place a pen on the ground to gauge the reactions of museum visitors. Soon enough, a tiny audience gathered around the writing object, snapping photos of the item and wondering how it constituted art.
