The Ministry of Plenty

mixed media, dimensions variable, 2003

This work is the second in a series of 4 works referencing the book 1984 by George Orwell. This particular ministry was a clear reference to the increasingly commercial globalisation of the world. The work also referenced places of worship and was of particular relevance being installed in Kyoto, famous for its temples and shrines. The interior contained a video projection, a slow motion loop of a flag flying. This video footage was taken during a residency period at the Bemis Centre for Contemporary Art in Omaha, Nebraska, in 2002. This flag was of an enormous size and flew above a interstate highway on the outskirts of the city. interior
