Conceptual Art Research 

Spending some time researching the genre of conceptual art and some of the key artists has really helped me to understand how to work in this way and has driven my own ideas. I am particularly interested in the political work of Ai Weiwei, especially as unlike many conceptual artists his work remains aesthetically pleasing. I am especially inspired by Straight, his sculpture which makes a political statement about the death of school children in the Sichuan earthquake. The work of Susan Collis  is also very aesthetically pleasing and I love the way she experiements with the perceptions of the viewer allowing them to really engage with her work. I am also really inspired by the interactive work of Roman Ondak as he challenges perceptions of what art should be and creates work which the public can interactive with.
