Justin, Your post and your response to the responses leads me to ask these questions: Why does it matter whether or not this blob of color can be classified as "art?" And: Who gets to establish that classification? And, finally: You ask the question whether or not chance devalues it's "message." Why do you think it ought to have a "message?" And: If it had a message, what would its un-devalued message be?" The thing is what it is. By the way, luck always enters into the production of a thing that ends up being accepted as "art" by those to whom that kind of categorization matters. There are painters who do things like spatter paint on a canvas and walk around on it, producing something accepted by the "art community" as "art" and selling for absurd amounts of money to the terminally gullible. Is that what you're shooting for?
