They soon dye and are replaced by a new tenant.

‘The Great Escape’

Two found house flies which I collected from my house, mounted, named after 2 pilots in the film ‘The Great Escape’ with a quote from the group captain “Harass and confound the enemy wherever possible”- playing on the way we name and share/put human qualities onto pets- in tern we empathise with them.

The fly that wanted to leave…

by Joanna Rose Tidey

With this I have been looking into the way we inhabit a space and how the environments we exist in effect that of nature. We co-exist within a space, they get accidently contained, struggle to get free form the containers we live.
