What is Art?

I wanted to set up some thought experiments for my ‘book’ on information metaphysics. I think I’ll need a metaphysical model as a starting point. It probably ought to be a software model. I started with imaginary lumps representing science, politics and religion, all of which I’ve been comparing and contrasting recently, then I realised I’d left out information. As I sketched, I realised that I’d also missed art. What is art?

I think that art observes, interprets, asks questions, reacts then reflects back. Doing that may require craft skills. Do you agree?
Why do we “sketch out an idea”?  Am I “blogging out” now or am I un-secretly blogging in?
