As far as I know art is anything put forth as art.

The only argument I know that might say otherwise is the agument of functionality. Say you build a car to drive around in, is that car art or just a car. Think about it in terms of people who buy and sell art. Can a art dealer take a car and sell it as art, say for more than it's worth or would the client just complain that it's just a car. Hence if the car wasn't functional then it can be art in the mind of a art dealer.

When is a door not a door..

hmm maybe when it's art, or open.

I say it depends. I'd like to agree, but for instance when painting with actual paints, it sometimes happens that the palette looks better than the painting.

This probably has more to do with the fact that I don't like to see the effort it took to create an image, and less with something being art or not. A palette doesn't make much of an image but there's even less effort visible in it.

I dodge the question by answering: part accident, part conscious effort.

My understanding is that Art is something put forward to convey an idea, a though or an emotion.

Seriously, who would want to take it on themself to become the person that decide what art isn't.
It's not really the way creativity works.
The most that anyone can do is decide that they don't like what some calls art, that's about it.

i utterly agree.

the bauhaus movement proved that functionality can be art.
