THE WRITING IS ON THE WALL, 2009
The concept behind this piece relates to Emily and Alfred Tennyson but has a universal theme. The Tennysons’ lifestyle was researched and it was found that they read vast amounts of literature. Their evenings would be filled with guests, readings and discussion, and these were compared to a typical evening spent by the average person in the 21st century.
Created to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lord Alfred Tennyson's birth.
