Is there a difference between something designed for purely commercial reasons and something designed for purely aesthetic reasons? Is there an overlap? William Morris' wallpaper was designed to look good, to take advantage of modern (Victorian) materials, machinery and techniques and to stand repeated viewings. But, art?
Is itIs it enough to say "I am an artist, this is my art"? If you use shop bought wallpaper as an album sleeve does it become art just because you were a Fine Art student like Barney Bubbles or Ian Dury?
