Sweet Emotion

I just read a New Scientist article about emotions. It focused on those that have not yet been recognised as major emotions. I found the section on elevation particularly thought-provoking. Art quite often focuses on representing peoples emotions through visual processes. However, it would be interesting to see how much art can affect peoples emotions and if it is possible for art to bring out emotions like elevation. The Article can be found here on the New Scientist website.

/A lot of people reported experiencing elevation 
during Barack Obama's inauguration speech\

Statement about my work to do with peoples movements

As a follow up to the previous post, I have reworded my statement on my work to do with peoples movements:

I am interested in the power I have as an artist to control people and their movements. I use concrete as a medium for this because of its powerful, dominant, formidable qualities. I also feel that concrete directly and indirectly affects our movements and lifestyles subconsciously every day, regardless of what work I produce.
