An adult butterfly’s life span is two weeks; this time is precious. LIFE-SIZE ME gives an opportunity for dead objects to experience the same phenomenon of life. As part of Peter John-Morton’s final Masters project, a life-size puppet of himself was permanently attached to him for 2 weeks. This meant he slept, showered and lived with it for 24hours a day. In this time it chose a name (Ridley), explored Canterbury and realised itself. Through this process a strong bond between puppet and puppeteer, man and object will formed, as it became a parasite to Peter’s physical and mental strength. The project explores our relationships with objects, in a very literal way. This is the documentary about this process.
