Bad Ideas Collective is an ongoing online project that gives exposure to art works that haven’t been realised due to creative doubt or other personal misgivings, introducing audiences to the internal discourse and decision-making involved in the creative process. Artists produce short videos that reflect on projects which they held back from developing for reasons other than purely practical obstacles – for example either because of perceived inadequacies in the concept, or due to speculation over audience responses.
