Are Memes Art? I think memes are art. Its something created by a person to express somethings to others. Art is for someone to be creative and express your imagination. So Memes are art.
what is the meaning of Art?
“Art, in its broadest sense, is a form of communication. It means whatever the artist intends it to mean, and this meaning is shaped by the materials, techniques, and forms it makes use of, as well as the ideas and feelings it creates in its viewers . Art is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observations.”
( https://courses.lumenlearning.com/boundless-arthistory/chapter/what-is-art/ ) I also linked it in the word ART.
Art is whatever a person wants it to be. Therefor Memes are art. Memes are a sort of self-expression because its a creation of how you feel or what you like. You could do whatever you want with a meme and add your style to it.
If someone does not think memes are art. All imma say is..
I was never a person who really used memes a lot. This class has made me realized of how fun it is using memes and also creating them. My friends would always send a meme to the group chat and once in a while I would send one to show my reaction to something they said just to try it out. Now I use memes a lot more.
This class is definitely one of my favorite classes and most fun class that I’ve ever taken.
