Did you really see it as art? I didn't get the idea that had anything
to do with it. Although it could become that way.

I thought of it as a functional representation of the real estate it
was and was offering (the same thing I guess in this case), but maybe
the art definition is the problem again. I wouldn't see all artifice
as art. Graphic design I don't see as art (for the most part) and
that's pretty much what I saw. I suppose I'd have to go in as a player
to really find out though. I really didn't consider the financial
aspect at all. Just the idea of territory was what interested me most.
The potential for art to happen is great though. Commissioning artists
for your new-found kingdom is a natural thing to do. Was I just not
looking at the right place? I just saw the news pics. Definitely not
art. And cash doesn't make it any more so.
