  1. I do agree with you that art is anything that consist of Image. An image could express the way someone feels. The first meme is definitely how it be when you wake up for CT101.

  2. You are absolutely correct, all images are art and when it comes to adding words to it, it becomes a meme. I feel that sometimes the added words help emphasize on a particular feeling/emotion the artist wants to convey. For example, without the words on some images, a particular emotion may be lost; except when it is done intentionally to allow the viewer to make subjective connections with the art. Nice one!
