Conceptual Art Project

Conceptual Art is very artsy fartsy, with its meaning-filled pieces and really deep thoughts on the concept of art and all that mumbo jumbo. Well, I got a project where I had to take something I liked and think of what that thing meant to me. Then, using that object, I had to create a self-portrait. So I took markers (because chocolate was cliche!) and decided that I thought of them as toys. So in layman's terms, I used markers and made an awesome toy!It took 4 packs of markers (about $15), some muscle to bend those bars (which I did with a big clamp and my bare hands!), yarn I stole from my friend, and lots and lots of hot glue to make!

Cool conceptual art, Laura! Is "artsy fartsy" technical art terminology?
