Assignment #3- Are Memes Art..?

Art attack Giphy

I personally do think memes count as a form of art, It may not take much thought or be as hard as other forms of art but, I think it counts.

After googling  if memes were art,

I found many links and many people believe memes are also an art form. To me, art is just a form of expression no matter how much effort it takes. Art isn’t just a painting. Even some paintings can take very little effort and still be considered art. Just like the video, we watched in class, the YouTuber mentions how creating a meme is art.

I think that to a certain extent memes being here to stay can be both good and bad because some people are just cruel and will use memes as a way to be mean as well, But at the same time, it can be good because it gives many people a way to express themselves and will also give them a way communicate and relate to others

Memes can definitely be used to tell a story. there are so many different memes put there with the same picture but most of them mean very different things because many people have different interpretations and perspectives of the same picture.
