The Village People:
I walked through my workshop this evening and saw these figures standing on the table exactly where I left them about two months ago!
The Imagined Villagers,
I was going to take them down to the beach and try and make an animated video experimenting with styles an techniques.
I wanted the sea moving in the background behind them
I was going to try and realise imagined characters from the origininal Hampton Community.
A working oyster and fishing community in the 1900's
I wanted to see if they developed their own life stories.
Stories and feed back from people who saw the video or saw the figures exhibited, moved them about, rearranged them.
I might have made some 'props' things to group together make scenes with, regroup with different items to generate new stories.
Adding to their lives and re-creating the community
I havn't got the time to do that now and things have moved on anyway.

They would be giants, if they walked amongst the imagined village model of white houses.
