What is conceptual art?

Is it the idea? The process? The product? The documentation? What is important for a conceptual art piece to be successful, and why do some fail horribly?

Many conceptual artists fall into several categories: Installation, transformation of objects (such as Duchamp’s Fountain), and performance pieces. Often times they can result in shocking results, that make you question humanity as a whole. And some simply make you question a simple object.

Metamorphosis will allow you to explore the extensive world of conceptual art, drawing inspiration from conceptual artists, from non-art objects, and from your everyday experiences and/or habits. For this project, documentation is key!
