Object Empathy

Diana Shpungin

Learn more about Diana's work.

We continue our exploration of ArtPrize and meet with Brooklyn-based artist Diana Shpungin. Diana's work and her assignment for you are both based on empathy -- it's a feeling we usually have for other people, but Diana wants you to direct your empathy towards objects instead. 


1. Find and object you feel bad for.
2. Fix it in your own style.
3. Show us what you've done. Upload using #theartassignment.
4. Fame and glory (Your work might be in a future episode).
