'Ind'l Rev'n : Litrosophobia'


40 x 65 x 65cm


Copper, vitreous enamel, spray paint and wood.


This installation comprises three Victoria sponge cakes with Victorian tile motifs. Each cake symbolises three major social issues of the Industrial Revolution era and ongoing. Each piece has graffitied words which state a conclusive viewpoint on those issues as well as commenting on our condition / living within an inherited Victorian city. Inspired by my neighbour who had been addicted to alcohol for over 4 decades and the Victorian working class’ high expenditure on drinking consumption. Alcoholism has been persistently one of society’s most serious issues.
