Ok so i find out today from my art teacher, i might be getting kicked off the course.

Their reason? I haven't produced enough work
My excuse? the course is boring, ****ty, and uninspiring.

I'm doing A-Level art and the course is based on the themes of Destruction, Decay, Erode etc etc.

My specific direction has ventured into the theme of societys downfall. A few examples that i've done are
-a portrait of a political figure done entirely out of newspaper cuttings
-a barrel of oil containing blood
-a banknote with V for Vendetta's head replacing the queen (for the jokes)

What I'm asking for is any ideas and suggestions... especially if you're doing the course. Cookies all round for any ideas, cheers in advance!


TL;DR - Need ideas for art project, themes are destruction and societiys downfall

You could always look at the art work inlays for the Arch Enemy album Doomsday that could give a few ideas

That sounds awesome.

I'd love to paint a giant apocalypse or something.
Maybe take Salvador Dali's clocks and mix some buildings in, and rain fiery destruction down on them.

Alright, you get a slight touché for that. Still, I'd feel dirty for doing anything in the outside world relating to that site

a nice painting of mindless robots in an internet cafe would be pretty good. or a eyeless person wired to a webcam. a school full of blank expressioned children playing xbox? i could go on for days.

Make an ad, "vintage style", like this one for example:


Maybe for some kind of imaginary brand of car that uses a whole lot of gas, with a slogan like "Hugecarnamehere - A big spender's choice!" or something, with factories contaminating the sky in the background...

No, but I would prefer it, as im working at home at the moment, everything 3D's a bit hard to get into school as i live miles away

Funny thing is this is the kinda **** you might actually get away with. Some chick in my class put some mould in a bag and kept it. MOULD!

did the barrel contain real blood?


Nah, it was a sketch, my bad, but I did the barrel in pencil, and the blood with oil pastels. looked Good though, the real thing would be a bitch to do, as I'm talkin proper oil barrels here. Either i gotta murder some fools, or do some serious dying.

I also do History, and English Literature... I'm not the type to pick art, media and music or something, but what's wrong in a little fun?

One word - Parody. Do not follow through with images of destruction, decay etc, parody them. The fact that all parody is derivative adds irony. After all, these days we worship 'original' pieces, while derivative works are pushed to the side.

If I was given that brief, I would probably jump straight to death- decay of the body through old age, through disease and though misuse.

There are tons of artists going round in my mind for this, but I can't recall their names. I reckon you should look at Franko B, it fits in with what I just suggested and possibly also with the piece you did with blood.



This guy paints himself white, then drains himself of blood on stage.

I'll try and think of more references for you.

Actually, that's the most web-friendly picture I can find of him, you need to watch his performances...

Is this helpful though? Do you want me to come up with more ideas?
