The second part of 'Crime of Silence' was a team project. We concluded on a chosen area (consumer gain) to develop into a live installation. (Part 1)
We wanted to express how some slaughterhouses in the UK are getting away with distressing behaviour towards animals, before they are slaughtered. Cattle was the main focus for our installation, by wanting the viewer feel like the animal. We produced a metal box for the viewer to crawl into, accompanied with bad smells, audio and images.
I emailed various charities to gain more information and even useful material. PETA and Animal Aid were particularly very helpful for my project, giving me slaughter images to use in the projection video.
