I have battled recently to push my ideas away from function to art. I'm not going to lie, I don't really think of myself as an artist. I think of myself as a designer.
That doesn't necessarily mean I would hate to be known as an artist, I just prefer to have an idea do something. The art world is a very strange one, it is all opinion and taste. One work may be utter rubbish to a certain individual yet amazing to the next.
Don't get me wrong, I do really like a lot of artistic works. It is interesting to see how it progresses through time and how it influences everything. But at the same time I find functional design much more appealing. So for this module I am having to bite my lip a bit. But I'm getting there.
