dc.description.abstractThis study is an examination of an artist's methods and intentions within the processes of the making of Live Art. In this research, however, instead of the term "live art", the expression "art that presents the living body" is used. This is to draw a boundary around a particular style of artwork for discussion in the live art scene in Britain. The investigation is centred on one work titled Book of G (2006). The study produces an emergent structure for the thesis that is integral in documenting the processes. The study highlights the connections between the disciplines of sculpture and "art that presents the living body" by focusing on how the interaction between artists, objects and materials shape the concepts of artwork. Research methods such as Studio Activity Sheets SASs, as well as written diaries, are employed in a "naturalistic" setting and lens -based media have been used to create photographic sketches of the "explorative experiments" (Schön 1983). The development of three additional art pieces, Oh au Naturel (2003) Abandoned (2004), and Bad Luck (2006) have also informed this research, together with ideas about other artists' making processes which were collected through interviewing artists Marie Cool and Fabio Balducci, Karla Black, and Sarah Spanton.en
