We can often feel unmoved by the problems of others and global issues, even when we could do something to help. We have access to so much data and this can leave us feeling overwhelmed and disconnected, not empowered and wanting to take action. But most of us have something that when the topic comes up we feel strongly about it, and as artists we are in a unique and powerful position to actually make a difference.
Without words and data which can feel like you’re being preached to, Art can make a message felt, and in feeling the viewer can think, engage, and even take action. There is a vast range of truly differing perceptions, ideas, and knowledge. By choosing a topic you feel strongly about, your art can become a transformative experience for someone else. When you’re making your art portfolio allow yourself to cherish your own intuition, uncertainty, and creativity and search constantly for new ideas and ways to break the rules. If you do your art will have the potential to make us more tolerant of difference and of one another.
What cause or world problem do you feel passionately about? How can you visually express how you feel about it? There are so many global problems, try choosing one to make an art portfolio piece about. The more strongly you feel about it, the better it will be.
