Myq Kaplan's Kickstarter Project 'What Is Conceptual Art?' (VIDEO)

Comedian Myq Kaplan has set out to answer one of life's unanswerable questions: What is art?

More specifically, what is art according to Kickstarter?

To accomplish this he has entered the belly of the fundraising beast and started his own Kickstarter project where he is attempting to raise $1. (He has already surpassed that goal.) With that $1 he will buy an envelope and a stamp and send Kickstarter a letter asking them what art is. It's just that simple.

In the video Kaplan explains the concept as well as what donors will get by participating: for $1 he'll add your name to the letter, for $2 he'll add your name in a larger font, and so on.

Watch the clip above and let us know if you plan to donate and what you think art really is.
