Unnatural Wealth


Unnatural Wealth combines moving image and disembodied voices, creating an absurd allegory of the times through a look at language circulating in the property market. This work evolved from a period of research viewing luxury apartments with estate agents in London, and later in Glasgow. Footage of flat viewings is used to create the background for collage works, where disembodied teeth become inflicted by spam and advertising, which creates parasitic extrusions on their surface. References to the mouth, in particular representations of teeth, recur throughout as a way to deconstruct the voice.
