Abstract / Description of output

Installation of a large scale drawing at The Great North Museum Hancock. This was part of an event called "Death and The End of All Things". A large drawing was installed amongst the specimens of British species of 8 non-human animals extinct from Britain. Participants were invited to erase the piece and contribute to the disappearance of the animals. Participants were also asked to fill out some questions after.
The findings showed most participants were very reluctant, and some refused to do it. It raised a lot of discussions with the artist and between participants. A video piece was created of the event and participatory piece.
