SculptureRyedale Folk Museum had an open exhibition based on Voting. Ryedale District Council were throwing out the traditional black metal boxes and sponsored the exhibition.
My sculpture expressed my frustration at the UK voting system. And the waste of voting rights that were so hard won for women and non property owners. (The village I lived in still had a Lord of the Manor who oversees 'fines' on villagers for accessing their houses over the 'common'.)

|The final piece contained the porcelain fingerprints and 25 legal 'red' tape seals representing the number of times I had participated in public elections.|
