What am I doing wrong


Robert,

My advice would be not to spend time worrying about this.

If you're asking how you should change your artwork in order to be selected for ArtBase, then my answer would be that you should make artwork that you believe in, not artwork that is chasing after others' opinions.

If your question is really a form of objection to not being selected... well, I'd suggest just keep developing your artwork and not get too focused on this one particular venue. One of your works might be selected at some point, or not... but I don't think worrying about it is the best use of your creative energy.

If you're really just wanting feedback on your work, then I'd suggest having a studio visit with one of your professors (your bio indicated you're a studio art undergrad). Your professors are there to give you the kind of honest, intense, and personal feedback that is very hard to find outside of school.

Stars (2007) - Ilia Ovechkin


Following the link, I noticed that Ilia Ovechkin is responsible for the gif, but not the installation. She wrote:

not sure who made the installation, but i believe this is from the frieze art fair. i just made the gif

Anyone know who did the installation?
