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 was to express my frustration at the voting system. And the waste of voting rights that were so hard won for women and non property owners. (The village I live in still has a 'Lord of the Manor' who 'fines' villagers.)
|Thousands of ceramic fingerprint petals representing the very low turnout and apathy of voters in my local constituency.|
|The final piece contained the porcelain fingerprints and 25 legal 'red' tape seals representing the number of times I've participated in public elections.|
