1 John 3:8
‘8 The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.’
Intrigued by folktales and stories passed down for generations, my work is an intricate and slightly humorous take on morals taught to us from ancestors in the form of a horror mockumentary inspired by films such as The Blair Witch Project (1999). The video piece tells a story of a young person trying to right the wrongs of a rumour about devilish mishaps regarding local families’ pets. Despite persistent warnings from her mother about the dangers of being in the woods late at night – as well as stranger danger – the protagonist ventures out against the wishes of others, only to find out she definitely should have stayed at home.
