[ISEA96] Artist Statement: Steven Murgatroyd – Doll

Artist Statement

From Russian dolls and the party game “Pin the tail on the donkey”, “Doll” finally emerged as an animated freakshow attraction. A freak trapped in the cartesian space of Harriet’s 3D paste up programme, which through trial and error developed arms and legs and avoided a lengthy narrative, only to end up inside Leonardo’s universally recognisable World In Action drawing. Was that it’s destiny ? Or was it being manipulated by some vey intelligent circles and squares?
