    This short video shows the thinking behind Mike Edwards artwork 'Article Ten'. 'Article Ten' is a contemporary reflection on freedom. It features a portrait of Nadia Tolokonnikova from Pussy Riot created from the redacted text of William Wordsworth’s famous poem ‘I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud’. The text in this artwork - Wordsworth’s poem expressing a sense of freedom and joy elicited by his gazing at the beauty of nature - is symbolically redacted in places - reflecting current issues of censorship, secrecy and political oppression by various governments - with particular relevance to the cases of Snowden, Manning and Assange. The use of Pussy Riot and their symbolic fight for human rights and artistic freedom as a subject in the artwork - is used as a metaphoric example of the regressive impact on human culture that occurs when the bruts, the bullies and the barbarians are in power. Adding to this, the beautiful face of Nadia is also ‘covered-up’ by the ‘de-terrorised’ yellow balaclava - simultaneously ‘redacting’ beauty - but also visually representing the daffodils in the poem. The artwork is entitled ‘Article 10’ - a reference to the Geneva Convention For Human Rights. It also hints at the artist's awareness that as well as creating a work of art - he has also created a commodity; a necessary act if the voices of artists without trust funds, Arts Council grants or wealthy backgrounds are to be heard. The image of Nadia comes from an original photograph by Igor Mukhin. The composition echoes the early 20th century Russian Constructivist poster ‘Books’ by Aleksandr Rodchenko - more recently re-created by Mathew Cooper for Franz Ferdinand’s album ‘You Can Have It So Much Better’. The stormy, semi-abstract painted sky - over which Wordsworth’s poem is written symbolizes the storm of controversy surrounding Pussy Riot’s challenge to Putin’s government and their subsequent incarceration. It also echoes the dramatic English Lake District scenery around which Wordsworth ‘wandered lonely as a cloud’ - and where the artist Mike Edwards grew up.
