The idea for this artwork germinated from a stop-motion video I created entitled 'The Toybox'.
The video depicts a young girl emptying her toys out of her toybox in search of something meaningful. It is set to frenetic, slightly insane, frenetic, cool music by Roger Seldon, Chas Seldon & Cleo Seldon.
In the process, the young girl in the stop-frame slowly transforms into a puppet-doll herself. She becomes the piece that she longs for, and finds herself taking refuge in the toybox itself.
