Surrounding the suitcases are heaps of discarded infant clothing. The clothes are covered in a fine dusting of flour. The flour, the heaps of clothes are indicators of neglect, the flour also referring to the baking process. On the wall is a roll of domestic vintage wallpaper. It hangs from the ceiling and connects to the suitcases, mid way up a Tahitian Gauguin print is displayed. I chose to introduce Gauguin as he was an artist that made a choice regarding his art career and children. Every minute a 10 second clip plays of children laughing and playing, all moments captured because there was a witness.
