People like memes because they usually show some kind of emotion that can’t be described in any other way. It is usually meant to be a joke.
In today’s assignment, We had to answer one of the most sought after questions of our generation, “Are memes art?”
Well, are they?
The short answer is yes!!!
According to Wikipedia, “Art is a diverse range of human activities involving the creation of visual, auditory or performing artifacts, which express the creator’s imagination, conceptual ideas, or technical skill, intended to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.”
In order words, art reflects the things in our lives as Society, Human aspirations, Culture, Geo-politics, etc., as we know it.
Time is one of the biggest influences on art. As time moves on, so does our taste in art. Today, with the impact of the internet in our society, viral media serves as a form of art.
While many may argue that “digital art” or digital media is not real art, it is still art, just a different medium. Art, to me, is an expression of the human experience.
