Vaux | Prodigals | 09-1999

'Prodigals' explored ideas of trashing our inheritance, and accepting those who return having hurt us. This led into communion, the place where prodigals return and find acceptance. Small cast concrete figures were placed around the space. The screen image shows Laika the space dog, which was a recurring fascination for Nic Hughes. The screen on the right is showing some old Super-8 home movies.

Laika and the home movie of travel both fit into the idea of the Prodigal, away from home.


Stills from 'Flo alone', a short animated film by Third Sunday Service.

Flo travels but is protected by angels and the hand of God.
