It's not art. People thinking that they're being 'profound' by describing art in a way which includes everything, even a can of excrement, but they're really being exceedingly juvenile, gauche and woefully inadequate when it comes to the science of definition.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it. Time in its deeps swims like a monstrous whale; and, like a whale, feeds on the littlest things -- small tunes and little unskilled songs of the olden, golden evenings -- and anon turneth whale-like to overthrow whole ships."
- Lord Dunsany -

"We enjoy, we see nothing by direct vision; but only by reflection, and in anatomical dismemberment."
