So many congrats on your DD!!!! Well done, my friend!!! Art is never true art unless it causes people to think and makes people react (positively or negatively.) The fact that your piece is causing such divided opinions defines what should be a DD! You are fabulous!

Who are you to define what 'art' is and is not?

It's not fair. People are complaining that this isn't art because there's hardly anything there or it is too simple. Because there aren't any brush strokes, or some use of technical skill that can only be achieved by hundreds of hours of practice, or if the artwork appears to have no subject, then somehow it can't be deemed as art. That's not true.

Art in general is an expression of thought, emotion, and by extent perspective. People don't seem to understand this is minimalism. Of course it's simple. The reason I like this artwork is because it does convey thought. Yes, there's hardly anything there, but does it really take so much effort to make someone think? I see this artwork, and then I see the title. It makes me think how the title relates to the artwork.

Ex: In the earlier comments, someone said it looks like stairs. Ok, so is it leading up to a place of relief (the truth sets you free) or is it leading down in a place of stress and burden because the truth is too hard to handle?

Minimalism let's one explore their thoughts and see various interpretations on whatever the artist wants you to think about. So despite that there's "nothing" there, I'm glad this got a DD. This is an ART community. We should all appreciate the different kinds of art. If we don't like it, fine, but we should bash on it.

I get why some people complain about this not being something that deserves a DD, and I agree with that, but consider how much attention photos of boobs and asses get on this website. We should all hate on them instead...

to those of you saying things like "are you kidding?" or "anyone could do this" you need to just stop. this is a cracked wall, and I find it so beautiful and inspiring that a wall would even crack this way. congrast on the DD, I find this a beautiful piece of artwork that I couldn't just pass up. this is very aesthetically pleasing to me!

Thank you!  I'm truly touched that you enjoy it so much!  As I put things out there into the world one by one whether it's an image of my dog, or a tree, or a beach, or a crack in a wall, I have no ideas or expectations with regard to how it might possibly be received by anyone out there that might come across it. 
Thank you again for your comment!

I K R?  If someone would look at a piece like this and its title, and think about what the artist/photographer was saying, and what it means to them, then it is art that can stir you.   Art is, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder, and so not everyone will like it, but why begrudge someone their DD?  It costs none of you anything, and it makes you think....

I don't really get it. It's a torn piece of paper in a staircase shape. Obviously it can never go back to being perfectly whole, but other than that..

It doesn't need to have a deep meaning. It just has to be very simple, not very understandable and BOOM! ART!
