let them eat cake
This piece is a reaction to the actions of large corporations who damage the planet then commit to token acts of repair. Here the animals feast on man made junk food as their natural environment has been destroyed. Just as Marie Antoinette famously said, 'let them eat cake' before the French Revolution we are now again at a tipping point, where many want a revolution in how the planet and nature are affected by human beings.

Three pieces made for the show, The Future is Personal shown at Westbank Art Gallery London. All pieces are taken from reworkings of early photos from the start of NHS.

The final piece is an invented View Master reel, celebrating the NHS.
My love of Brutalist Architecture combined with the idea of nature in the city, digital collage.
Collage inspired by the upcoming 50 year anniversary of the moon landing and the sci-fi dream of people living on the moon.
