Artists Solve Problems
Artists are often faced with limitations. Some of these limitations can not be controlled, as is the case for Phil Hansen. While you are watching Phil's TED Talk, pay attention to how he deals with his limitations.
Tantamounter Project: A group of artists in NYC would collect an object from the public. In about 45 minutes, they would return the object with a work of art that was tantamount (virtuallly the same as) to the original. View the project here.
Today's Challenge: Select an object and in groups or alone, create a work of art that is tantamount to the original. You will have less than an hour to complete the piece.
