Few philosophers agree approximately what it's for anything to be artwork yet such a lot or all agree that artwork needs to be by some means intention-dependent. magazine Uidhir indicates that this requirement has radical implications for the character of artwork and of artwork types, for the ontology of artwork, and for matters approximately authorship.

So, if Annie’s bluff-attempt succeeds, then the goal of that attempt obtains in the manner Annie intended. What if the bluff-attempt fails? Just as the intended manner must ﬁgure substantively in a successful bluff-attempt, the intended manner must also ﬁgure substantively in a failed bluff-attempt. Of course, should I hold a royal ﬂush, the best hand in poker, I cannot bluff an opponent nor can my opponent bluff me because I cannot bring it about that my opponent comes to believe falsely that my hand is stronger than her own, nor can my opponent bring it about that I come to believe falsely that my own hand is weaker than hers—at least without either changing the rules of poker or rendering the opposing player irrational.
5 Likewise, although institutional theories and aesthetic theories of art may reject the artist’s attempts as exclusive art-makers, they don’t thereby reject attempt-dependence. , being art entails being the product of certain intentional actions such as achieving, appropriating, creating, designing, making, conferring, endowing, or bestowing). 6 My analysis of attempts then ought to apply to most, if not all, art theories. Although I want my notion of attempts—as well as the notion of failedart derived from it—to be as broadly applicable as possible, for the sake of simplicity and workability I assume art theory must be broadly deﬁnitional.
Intentions appear to be at best causally trivial, absent entirely from the work’s substantive causal history. The Putative Non-Art Case is a thing for which the presence of intentions plays no more substantive a role than does the absence of intentions for the similarly regarded and visually indistinguishable natural object. That something is trivially the product of an art-attempt shouldn’t be sufﬁcient for that thing being art. If attempts need only ﬁgure trivially, if at all, then intentions need only ﬁgure trivially, if at all.
