Art or Not Art



Ever been at a museum or gallery with a friend, who is less than sympathetic towards art, and suffered through the "You call that art!" spiel? Suffer no more. All you need is your iPhone and the "Is This Art?" app to answer the question and hopefully quiet the budding art critic.

The Mattress Factory and Deeplocal joined forces to create this not-so-serious art meter that will pass judgment on the object of your choice. Just point, shoot and end of argument. You may not always be happy with the answer, but it beats hearing how someone's aunt or cat could make better art. You can visit the "Is This Art?" website to see what others have put to the test.

I had the same thought about how my work would fair. Who knows, it might just confirm that we are artistic geniuses!
