What is [Art]? Baby don't hurt me...
While online last night, a friend of mine told me and another friend about the new Dead Island collectors edition fiasco (Thread hear: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/172163/dead-island-pr-come-up-with-most-appalling-idea-in-history-of-gaming-pr/p1
When told about it, me and my friend looked it up and both agreed it was dumb. However, she used the word "art" to describe said item included in the collectors edition. I had to disagree, as I felt it was a "product" intended for mass consumption. However, it occurred to me that other forms of media that are labeled art were also intended for mass consumption (movies, games, books).
So my question is, where is the boundary between art and a product, and how do we draw it?
