Detail of "a CandiD mover" by Chu, for Shangri-La Glastonbury 2015 - (1 of 7)

This is a close-up section of my new work entitled “a CandiD mover” which is showing in the Shangri-La field at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. The theme this year (in case you needed telling) is “political upheaval”.

One of the main pieces is a portrait of a current political figure, created from over 1000 stills from UK public protest coverage. Some of the footage is from The Poll Tax riots of 1990, Reclaim the Streets 1998 and at the more recent insurrection and takeover of Conservative Party HQ.
