Endangered Species

A collaborative film work created by Sarah Warsop, choreographer Siobhan Davies, film maker Deborah May and artist Sam Collins who, with mirrors and technical genius, enclosed the small, semi-human figure we filmed in an old museum display case. An ethereal otherworldly creature whose movements were exaggerated by the long willowy canes attached to her which at first appeared to extend the boundaries of her body but eventually restricted and extinguished her life form.

Created for Cape Farewell's The Ship: The Art of Climate Change (2006) at the Natural History Museum.
