Conceptually I wished to explore the evolution of sculpture and its accessibility and application as ‘art’ for younger artists and audiences. I have done this by drawing inspiration from classical sculptures such as Discobolus and modern artists such as Marcel Duchamp and Damien Hirst, whose works challenged existing paradigms of what constituted ‘true art’. By meticulously creating 3D models relating to contemporary internet culture, and investigating the relationship between the viewer and the virtual artefact through a virtual gallery, I intended to intrigue and demonstrate to the viewer a contemporaneous application of sculpture.
