Ponder the line between familiar and unfamiliar as a springboard to explore the 2024 High Art theme of DISTORTIONS. The art of distortion is described as a change to the shape, form, or size of a subject to convey an emotion, create a new meaning or profound visual impact, or even warp our sense of reality.  Contemplate exaggerated facial features, deflated balloons, melted crayons, pixelation, reflections in a broken mirror or unique surface, the sound of your voice underwater, or twisting the truth. 

Schools will define their unique response to distortions and explore how it will shape their concept and art installation. For inspiration look to artists through the ages such as Salvador Dali, Dan Hillier, Tony Matelli, Nadia Attura, Takashi Murakami, Cassandra Yap and Darian Mederos.

What is installation art? Installation art uses any material invention to modify the way a space is experienced and can be either temporary or permanent. The genre can incorporate a broad range of materials, including but not limited to huge, three-dimensional painting/murals, sculpture, poems, and new media such as video and sound.
