Artists!

Here I leave a link to one of the blogs I follow. The post below is from Javier Llinares’ governance.

Here, Javier tells us about one of his friends gatherings, where one of his old fellows suggests he’s an artists. Why?: because he is applying "his art" to increase the performance of the warehousing unit he works in. That’s OR mate!.

Funny I never thought of it as an art, but most probably because I’ve never thought of me as an artist neither. However, let’s have a thorough read to these excerpts from Wikipedia:

 

_"Art refers to a diverse range of human activities and artifacts, and may be used to cover all or any of the arts, including music, literature and other forms."

        Not so clear.

_"Traditionally the term art was used to refer to any skill or mastery…"

       Probably approaching to the concept.

_"From a more anthropological perspective, art is often a way of passing ideas and concepts on to later generations in a (somewhat) universal language."

       Maybe yes, maybe not.

 

However, for definite, I stick to the artist definition by Princeton University’s Wordnet 1.7.1:

 

A person whose creative work shows sensitivity and imagination.
