Is This Really Art?

This looks like somebody has too much time on their hands to me, but it will be "art" to somebody. Is it you? If so, please feel free to interpret.

I have a very simple test to determine if something is art. I ask the question, "Could I do that?"

Since I am not very artistic, I clearly could not paint the Mona Lisa, or carve anything worth looking at. However, I probably could find some old ladies to knit me a teacosy for a motorcycle. So therefore, this is clearly not art.

@ZCT

LOL! My thoughts exactly. A waste of a good moto in my book.

There was a basketball encased in a box with dirt at MOMA that cost $5K. I was highly pissed when I saw that

ZCT- I go by the same standard and I think (based off of that same prerequisite of whether I or anyone I know could do that or not) that it is art. Call me strange... :-/

I wouldn't go so far as to call it high art. But I could see someone having that thing sitting up in their living room with a doll propped up on it.

depends on who you ask.
some would put this in the catagory of 'art for arts sake'--in line with the dadists which lead to the surrealistic movement.

personally this thing is not art to me. but it does fit the art for arts sake critera.
too much pink for me--looks like a barbie bike.
