‘A low-angle glimpse of a mother’s petticoat initiates an encounter with a mass of tentacle hair which slithers across the table, intertwining and incorporating the objects which it encounters. These (china) objects take on the appearance of skin in contrast to the artificiality of the hair. The dishevelled hair mass engulfs the milk jug whose contents trickle climactically from the table. The depleted jug splutters, the table is drenched, and the hair devastates the scene.’ – Vicky Smith, LFMC.
