For Decorative Use Only

For Decorative Use Only was created as an illustration of a survey on 21st century rural village living in the Lincolnshire region.

I wished to allow people to express their feelings on what it means to live in smaller communities and how that related to perceptions of the ‘idyll’. For every positive comment that praised community spirit, the quiet life and the beauty of the non-urban environment there was one damning nosy neighbours, close mindedness, lack of facilities or public transport and over development. I was interested in these pockets  of dissent as a potential destabilising influence on the utopian ideal.
