In response to message #6
IMO, it is okay to call something that is aesthetically appealing for its own sake art. You're trying to make a pretty thing. It's art. It doesn't have to have meaning to be art. It just has to evoke a response in the viewer, which this does. (Even if the response is "oh, that's neat/pretty/a terrible waste of chemical supplies/a shameful commentary on what passes for modern art in Britain").
