[eu-gene] Software / generative / whatever

Statements like: "Art is....." and "Design is less important than art" and "Some are enthusiasts and some are artists" are making me want to go to another planet.
Can anyone here look at a work of generative art and tell if the artist was an artist or an enthisiast? Or if the work is design and not art.
What kind of an elitist group is this! Who are we to judge what is art?

Design is less important than art, because design depends upon and
presupposes art. Art is what creates the template for "the human
world." Design fills out the template.

generative art. And so more should be done to nurture criticism, theory, and
history work related to generative art. What can we do to make that happen?
