What is art? Baby, don't hurt me

Introduction to the introduction: OKAY. So I LOVE to start projects/experiments on this website and NEVER finish them so here is my new project.

Introduction: Modern art can be frustrating to understand. If I crumple up a piece of paper and spit on it what give me the right to call it art? Discussing the legitimacy of artwork is fascinating and tiring but that's not what I'm trying to do here. I LOVE art. Mydili is skeptical. That doesn't make me pretentious or her "uncultured" it just makes us different. What Mydili is going to do is continuously question: WHAT MAKES IT ART? She will mock and criticize and possibly even answer her own questions (God knows I've tried). And I am going to document. Enjoy :)

Part One: The Critique***
**these videos were taken on the bus back home from the MoMA. The video quality is horrible. You can hear people talking, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid playing in the background, and the city I love zooming in the background. You will have to focus but I think all the distractions in the background enhance the experience. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Oh and I added links to the artwork so you can see what she's talking about.
