The initial subject of my research project was a personal concern of what is art today.
Certain art works made me wonder which the standards according to which they are ranked.
The main question I raised is:
“CAN AN EPHEMERAL CONSTRUCTION BE CONSIDERED AS A MASTERPIECE OF MODERN ART?”
My persistence and admiration towards ephemeral constructions and whatever has to do with that kind of constructions, in opposition to modern art works with similar subjects, initiated a process of comparison and inquiry of their differences.
To answer my questions around art today, I had to study as mush as I could around this subject. So I checked over history books to learn what art was in the past.
In the first chapter I made a fulfilled reference to this subject. I gave examples from five different eras: prehistory, Egyptian art, ancient Greece, renaissance and finally the 20th century – abstracted art.
Another factor for the understanding of what is art today or how an artist is evolved is the general status of the spirit and morals of our times. And this would be the second chapter of my project.
The 3rd chapter is about art today and it was made a comparison of an art team that I chose with a group of gypsy.
Then I indicated a series of theories and answers that was given to me and I have kept to my notebook, since this will be finally my research project. Farther on there will be a presentation of my work. I will present step by step the process of a research until we reach to its creative part.
To go on I believed I had to meet and talk with modern artist. So I raised a series of questions. The first questions would be personal, since the experience of the artist and the understanding of his personal work is very important. So, I created a questionnaire.
In this part of my research, I wondered for what reason and which is the deepest cause that forced me to occupy meticulously with this subject. To find the answers I had to turn to myself. This quest will also be the third step of my research. Initially I had to find in which ways I could study myself. The way I preferred to see myself was as a building, architecture. The research and study of human body represented the last part of my research, so that we can view the new form and usage of the building.
