About the Artwork
An air-dropped aid parcel suspended from a tree by it’s parachute. The parcel contains items relating to the subject of the ‘disparity between research based practices and production based practices; the polarity between the conceptual significance of the object as carrier; and the gulf between learning to speak with great articulation and eloquence and the incoherency of stuttering and stammering a chain of unrelated words at great volume’. The contents of the aid parcel are listed on an etched, metal plaque placed nearby.
