In response to Numo Jeager's reply to dadssw -- I think in this case

dadssw's teacher's definition of what is art; like many other such
definitions since the Cultural Revolution, are more political
philosophy than personal. Like American as apple pie -- definitions
were developed by revolution and nationalism. I am close on this
one? Or not?


Numo Jaeger's message to dadssw goes as follows:

Thank you for sharing your experience. Do you think that this experience you
had was one of cultural differences or an experience which represented the
difference is your definition of "art" and your teacher's definition of "art"?
