Ben Wheele: Decoration

Ben Wheele describes his 2011 graduation film from the Royal College of Art as "a sci-fi Baroque fairy tale". The incredibly visceral animation is "literally dripping with misanthropic venom"... In 'Decoration' we see an elegant vase inside the body of a girl. The vase repeatedly depicts a childhood memory of her dead pet hamster, using her living tissue.
