Progress - the result

These are the pieces I exhibited at Progress. They are abstract illustrations in response to newspaper headlines about people affected by the recession. I (painfully) made loads of 3D shapes out of paper and arranged them in a way which illustrated the rise and fall of one man in Essex who lost his job as a paper doilies factory manager, having to give up his £60K household income and survive on £60.50 a week. The other was a representation of the glamourous life of Vegas showgirls working at the Tropicana casino who lost their jobs when the casino was forced to turn off all its' lights forever.
