This video takes found images of female american convicts that were found on-line on websites designed to ridicule and deter.
Originally created for the Bath International Music Festival, and projected vertically onto multiple strips of gauze.
The project was made in collaboration, with the sound produced by Laetitia Stott, a student at the Guildhall School of Music to a brief which had to address an adult retelling of the fairytale 'Rapunzel'. The original blurb read as follows:
'What makes a person good or evil, victim or villain?
How does circumstance affect a life? Are the women in the pictures fairytale witches or child heroines whose stories have taken a wrong turn?
Our perceptions distort, casting these women in whichever role we choose. But perhaps the truth is staring right back at you.'
