My main focus after conducting research for the essay side of this project was to concentrate on the ‘impact’ community artists could have. This lead me to the idea of doing more workshops and working with the community groups in order to create something that they all could be part of.
The first idea is to create an installation, something which could be worked on and designed with the group and then exhibited. Considering the work of Vik Muniz who gave something back to the community with which he worked, I wanted to give something back to them which wouldn’t cause ethical issues like the money he handed over. His idea to take the people he was working with to an art gallery to see the work was great and it was this process which inspired me to want to create an installation with the group. I did however want to develop this further by looking into the group being able to interact with the piece even further whilst it was in the exhibition space encouraging altered perceptions of art.
