Is This Art?

Year after year I have made images like this: my camera fires when I pull it out of the bag or, in the film years, when I was loading my camera. Sometimes it is a manual exposure, and sometimes it is an aperture-priority frame, and since the camera is in the dark, the shutter speed is long.

In any case, is this art? If so, what are its merits? What does it say or imply?

We saw a lot of these at the front of a roll of film, made while we advanced the film to frame number one.
