Reflection: Using people and situations as a medium?

Posted on by Ben Hodson

I now see myself as an artist in the tradition of Jeremy Deller, Since pursuing a higher level of reflection and development in my practice while studying for this MA, I have begun to use people and situations as a medium.  I view my role as an artist, as the instigator/facilitator.  Deller’s practice is based around the bringing together of concepts, projects, mediums and he regularly breaks conventions, works cross platform and cross media. My own practice is similarly varied, and I have been learning to free myself from the constraints of traditional art practices.
