There is a theory that modern day perceptions of wealth are key to the pursuit of freedom in opposition to the boundaries that surround it are more restrictive. This is essentially like living within a gilded cage. ‘Back in your Gilded Cage, Melanie Daniels’ (The Birds 1963) suitably summarizes the ideologies at the forefront of the subject of my work, which investigates the social aspects of wealth and freedom for women. The plaster cast birdcages are impractical, but attractive; restricting, yet lavish. The lampion floor projection is representative of the freedom that wealth allegedly brings, yet this is walled-in by the physical restrictions that surround it.
