This Fairies‘ Story


Shaky is the first public interaction fairy. There is a public footpath near my home. Very few people ever walk past but Shaky was made to stand on a five bar gate arm outstretched hoping to get a hand shake. Little did people know that there was a camera pointing at her. I wanted to see if I could catch people shaking her hand while complete unaware that they were being watched.

Shaky was made the month before Trentham Gardens discovered my work and she was relocated before I ever got to catch anybody on camera.

She was never meant to be a serious work of art which why I didn’t worry too much about the quality.
