Updates about my art project...
I've narrowed it down (Yay, congratulations Miriam)
=)
So I think my theme will be Enthusiasm/Inspiration through the abstract beauty of the world.
And then I thought of another idea, too. The idea of smells- which has to do with memories and inspiration, too. Every precise shade of a smell raises a certain moment in the history of your memories.
So wait, before you get all huffy, just notice that I only raised TWO ideas now and that is a big accomplishment!!!
Yay, so if anyone wants to help me get farther... Is there a way to combine the issue of abstract beauty and smells? And how would I display the sense of Smell? I mean that's nearly impossible in art, it would be so hard. Is it worth a shot? So I guess I'll end up sticking to my first idea, abstract beauty. This might be hard to display, too, since I don't want to IMPLY anything in this project, I just want to have the viewer go into my head for a second. Like force him to feel the enthusiasm out of the beauty. It's possible. It's hard. It takes a real artist to do this. Will I manage?

smell IS abstract beauty

do smell! i dont know how exactly, but its possible. have you ever watched tv or seen a picture of cake and just had a feeling that it smelled good? try to do some of those. and then maybe how smell is way more important than we think. we pity the blind, deaf, dumb and crippled, but not the scent-less.

right, so what i wanna say about smell is how every precise smell goes along with a certain memory, like memories are built with all 5 senses. So I think my final idea for the project is "concrete and abstract beauty through all five senses".
(Memories are included in the category of Beauty)

u can take THINGS that smell and use them with memories- for instance flowers or scented papers or scented perfumes or anything really... and then u can show memories that go with the smells.... dunno, im not that good at this stuff. but its an idea...
