3. What is the role of the artist?

A messenger of the concept. By utilizing various materials and methods, artists visualizes the concept, which has the ability to express something beyond words.

In Mark Dion’s work, he showed how difficult the nature’s task is by using a natural log from a forest. Nature is often taken for granted, but he is trying to raise awareness for what we destroy cannot be restored even with our technology. His approach to the issue creates much more impact than explaining the same thing by sentences. His concept was visually executed beautifully and gained more attention from audiences.
