Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree with this. Art is essentially cerebral. You are not intended to touch it - it's supposed to touch you.

When an artefact has a use in the physical world, other than the cerebral element, it becomes Applied art.

Design can be functional or decorative (or both), and uses similar aesthetic principles to art ("critical reflection on art, culture and nature.") but for a different purpose. Design is intended to be reproducible.

You can't be me, I'm taken
