No. Advertising is an end-result. It is the function that precedes
the form. Therefore it is an art-form. Art is free to interpretation
and analysis. It is whatever the surveyor interprets it as.
Advertising has immediate objectives that must appeal to the largest
mass of narrow-minded perceptions in a concise amount of time.
Art simply exists. An individual will decide it's relevant
meaning and message.
And furthermore, art requires no explanation.
