Is Process Art - Art?

Defining what an original act of creation is can be hazardous.

For example, my definition of what art is - something new that has not existed before where the product (whatever it is) can be enjoyed, admired, judged, criticized etc. by others.

In order for art to exist, there has to be someone or some group of people who can experience it - otherwise, what we would have would exist in a vacuum. Art must be viewed. heard, tasted, and felt.

Which leads me to the title of this blog entry - Is process art (art without thought of the outcome; not preplanned) art art? My answer is yes, if it meets the criteria defined above. If not, it's like any other creation that sits around without being experienced.

What do you think?
