Art practice: developing ideas
Four artists using very different media show how they develop their artwork from their initial response to a subject. Rachel Gadsden responds to a fire in Hampton Court with found objects; Pio Abad responds to excess in culture; collaborative artists Steve Ovett make statements using new technology and found objects, while Simon Faithful attempts to understand his place in the world around him through recording his journeys.
Discuss with students the key points made by the featured artists in this clip. Ask them to consider their current personal work in the same way and to identify the stages they have gone through to produce the work. This can be done through discussion or written work.
