None of them. As I said, we’re not supposed to be copying/reflecting/etc anything. We’re just supposed to use a basic understanding of his concerns and methods and such, and then do our own thing, having been exposed to him. My piece is going to be figurative, and so far the only things of his that have done anything for me in terms of relating to my own work is his self portrait as a fountain and the video piece where he covers himself in makeup. I doubt my piece will have any connection to any of his works at all, but I need to be able to discuss him/his stuff and explain what in his work did (or did not) influence me/make me think or whatever when doing my piece.
Basically what it comes down to is that I have to talk to the class for 10 minutes about this guy, and at the end of my talk I have to present my concept for my next piece. Mostly what I’m finding is neon signs with words on them and about all I would be able to say about that is “well, I doubt I’ll ever do anything even remotely like this, so, here’s my completely different idea for a piece” which isn’t really what the teacher wants. Heh.
So I was hoping that maybe somebody here had some favorite works of his that I could look at… perhaps something a bit more sculptural?
