    No I do AQA, but this is for my actual externally set exam and my chosen theme is outline, so I'm not sure what to do.

    Let's go with travelling, I'm in a Forces family so I've travelled around a lot - 8 houses, 3 countries. I love the idea of going new places and discovering new things.

    great, start from there.
    you could do wire sculptures of the different houses you have lived in but all with the same piece of wire like a continuous wire thing?
    or pick certain things from the landscape? whatever about the journey inspires you most, whatever it is that you want to make art about - and when you start doing this more ideas will come naturally

    At this point in your exam unit you should have a theme already within the topic outline. As you mentioned journeys I'm guessing this is your subtopic? So, you want to do a wire sculpture, the first thing that came to my mind within journeys was mode of travel so you could possibly make a small wire car? or plane? but its made of wire so it looks like the outline and therefore it will respond to the exam topic. You can also think of other topics within journey so e.g. suitcase, adventure, new people, new cultures. You can make wire sculptures of just about anything. Do you want to make just one? (if so then you should consider the size as you need to be able to complete it, but also make sure that you dont finish too early). You can also make several smaller sculptures so they make a series?

    Just some stuff you can think about. If you need more help feel free to ask!

    What about a sculpture of a landmark that is personal to you? Say for example your family was from france, you could do a wire sculpture of the london eye or something

    Thank you! But the thing is, it takes me a long time to think of ideas and I need to develop my book, but don't know where to start because first I looked at Andreas Lie (double exposure) and sara morais at identity. Could I maybe integrate that into it, because I was looking at identity but I got stuck. Can you maybe think about anything to do with identity with a continuous line sculpture?
    Thank you for your help so far!

    The problem is with that another theme you can choose from for your final piece is landmarks and apparently they don't like you to merge themes. But thank you for your help!

    I'm doing AQA art too and a few people in my class are merging themes so...
    Anyway, what about an object or something that means a lot to you then?

    I was maybe thinking about a journey through america as I did travel there a lot. But what about if I just did a really beautiful sculpture of just an interesting thing?
