Can Food Be Art? Perhaps, But That's The Wrong Question To Ask
Sara Davis: "One reason that art
is such a jealously guarded term is that we use it to elevate sensory experience to something special - the implication being that sensory experiences are not all that special on their own. ... The phrases 'eye candy' and 'ear candy' exist for a reason. So we rely on the word art
to separate out sensory experiences that feel more present (or, perhaps, more proper) in the mind."
