I’m thinking of situations where someone may consider something art that was not (evidently) a deliberate product of an artistic process. For instance, someone viewing something like the Grand Canyon my gain deep meaning and insight from the experience, and many of the qualities we talked about today (play, festival, etc) exist there.

Would Gadamer say that this event is artistic? Does this seem like a fair application of the theory, or is this application a little too thin?
