Various Animal Bones, glow in the dark rubber duck and other mixed media
Within ‘Regressive Flight’ I examine the regressive effect that the ‘Opium of the people’ (belief) may have in a post technological society, in the aftermath of disaster.
The piece seeks humorously to depict this by focusing on two main characters. The one below is chained although is giving the impression of being a semi willing sacrifice.
His arms are raised in a parody of flight but his crossed fingers allude to some doubts.
Far above on a raised platform a larger character is preparing to throw a rubber duck out into orbit; evidently the hope is that this divine object ‘with wings’ and magical glow is going to fly.
If it fails there will be a blood sacrifice and the cycle will go on next time in the form of a toy plane.
