Armour for flowers
Katy B Plummer
Armour For Flowers is a video installation project that considers the
unstable, entropic relationship between a mystical and a prosaic
encountering of the world, through the lens of spectator sports. Three
women, dressed as flowers, first encounter each other in an viscerally
embodied way. As their encounter is retold, it degrades and becomes encoded into a ritualised performance of their original encounter. At the end of the cycle, the memory of their embodied interaction has become purely decorative.

Karma is a bitch
Karma is a bitch examines metaphysical and utopian impulses of the recent past, such as the visual cultures associated with 1960s and 1970s American West Coast counterculture, ‘New Age’ spirituality and more recent tendencies towards self-help and therapeutic culture.
