High-school students often tie the definition of art to a two-dimensional surface, obstructing possible solutions to visual problem-solving and restricting creative thinking. In this article, the author describes a project that inspired students to view arts as a social event: installation art. From a contemporary point of view, installation art aims to break with established rules surrounding process, media, or presentation. This medium lends itself well to exploring complex issues, and enables an artist to use any creative means necessary to communicate an idea. (Contains 1 online resource.)
