We were set a prop making commission working with a civic education charity called Publicworks, who wanted figures that had made an impact on land reform in Britain to be represented as giant heads. The giant heads would be worn and used in a large panoramic photo tableau and as part of an installation at the Venice Architecture Biennale. My head is currently in Italy until September 2021. My figure was Kevin Cahill, who has written extensively about how the wealth of land in Britain is owned by the elite few.
