FREEDOM VERSION v1.0: CREATIVE STIRLING FUNDED COLLABORATIVE LARGE SCALE WALL INSTALLATION

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

freedom versions v1.0 a wall collaboration exploring ideas of freedom - creative stirling's launch project. my contribution is utopian no9 dream - impossible utopian vessels that will never float or fly. i combined rotting boat hulls, allotment sheds and huts (structures that could allow an individual to escape) to create strange vessels loosely based on the prison hulks used to transport prisoners to australia (or not) often simply sitting in english estuaries whilst the prisoners died of cholera. the skeletons are wearing ww2 children's gasmasks (lined with white and blue asbestos) that i found in the local museum - no escape from this distopia.
