My aim for this project was to focus on the existence of statues and the disconnect we now have with them in society. I wanted to explore the idea of statues having a lost narrative and breathing life into them. This video was inspired by the Wilfred Owen statue in Hamilton Square which represents his poem ‘Futility’ which can be heard in the background of this video. We have a habit of filtering statues out of our view and completely ignore them, so I wanted to create this project to make people realise what they are walking past and humanising the statues.
