My two chosen programmes are:
- Mannequin Factory // Fake People
- Prison // Real People
The mannequin factory will not only produce artistic mannequins and exhibit them in an exclusive gallery space, but also produce “clones” of the people being held in the prison. Depending on why the people are in prison, will depend on what happens to their mannequin – tortured or pampered. The real and fake will have matching bar codes which will act as the connection between the two opposing programmes, these will also be exhibited with the cloned mannequins. It is important to add, that the prisoners who are held in my hybrid space will be chosen from the Strangeways prison in Manchester, and will change / be rotated every six months.
