A poor attempt at clarifying some thoughts I’ve had for some time:
There has been too much stuff called art for that word to be useful.
I like to just say I do projects, and it’s a helpful test for me.
I like to take my projects as they are, and if something isn’t worth doing outside the context of art, then it isn’t worth doing at all.
After all, a painting doesn’t have to be called art for you to enjoy it.
