roughs for the installation

This Disney World, 2010

About the work:

This installation examines how the impact of human activity comes to the forefront as the battle for scarce resources manifests itself in the most unlikely of scenarios.
To Quote Court William, ‘The fantastical world of Disney has been turned upside down as Bambi and Thumper’s natural roles shift: species are pushed to the brink and
their instincts mutated as their environments are manipulated and resources depleted. The title itself plays on a wide-spread and chronic case of climate
denial – the horrors of a worst case scenario are pushed aside in favor of a Disney point of view where every ending is happy and every shoulder has a chirping
bluebird perched upon it’.

From The Exhibition Essay “The Heart of the Matter” by Court Williams, 2010
