My favourite of the concepts listed above are the circus train, unnatural forms, showing a story through upcycling, and discrimination of creative minds. I think each of these would be interesting to look further into to and perhaps develop a strong, focused concept from. For example, for the circus train idea I could research into the history of circus’s, the history of Kendal’s circus train, other artist’s interpretations of circuses and the way they represent them through art forms. I could perhaps look into people’s childhood dreams of being in the circus also.
