I Have been placing a few of my works around my surrounding environment, believing the piece should be where the heart of idea comes from (the scenario set in mind). I have no intention to try and do the ‘Bansky’ kind of thing, I just want ‘some’ of my work to be out there in the environment, even though it isn’t land art it gives me a great deal of satisfaction’s to do this. My work is put under the name of Humans in Cages the name is quite fitting to both my life and the human world I see around me. (Thanks to Photographer and friend Rob Nunns for taking the photographs at Wakefield Kirkgate)
The Odds That Were Against us (2007/2008)
This piece was intended to be put on the hills over looking a town. A landscape of troubles that will possibly face mankind this century. I was quite doubtful about our chances around this time. I wanted the work to be imagined as a kind of monument to humankind (as if it had already gone) looking down on it from the hills. (placed upon the High Hoyland ridge overlooking South Yorkshire, United Kingdom).
If you find any other small drawings on trains, pubs or bus stations by ‘humans in cages’ its me, I’m not trying to hide my true self, I’m unbelievably bad a that kind of thing!. But the name ‘Humans in cages’ is of relevance and importance to my work.
