I am fascinated by how seemingly insignificant choices can define our future and I wanted to explore that in an image. Women often obsess over their outfits which I’m sure is bewildering to most men and so I built a story around what might happen if a woman did choose ‘the wrong dress’. The image also gave me an opportunity to create an homage to one of nature’s most intriguing animals, the bowerbird.
Having never seen a bower in person I researched pictures on the Internet and created my own bower using sticks stuck into polystyrene and surrounded with mulch. I then had great fun collecting blue objects from around the house. The photo was used as an example of how to create a miniature person which you can read about here.
