A late night idea, turning into part of a series in which I produce video works of animals. There is a hint of social commentary, which in this piece I wanted to reflect how "our futures" are collectively being thrown away by our government. Their policies affect us all, whether it be tax increases, the loss and decline of benefits, rising fuel and food costs, cuts to education, unemployment, the attack on immigration - they all become apparent in our daily lives, or futures at some point. With the ducks I wanted to play the power figure, essentially becoming someone at the top of our society, picking and choosing who I help out and who I ignore: in this case, which duck/ goose/ seagull do I feed? And of course there are the traditional links between money and bread. I'd like to point out that no fowl was harmed during the making of this, and also the greedy goose who stole a WHOLE SLICE of bread right from my hand, and would also like to thank Cleethorpes Boating Lake for a lovely supply of birds and my mum for standing with me in the snowy weather.
