It's hard to decide exactly where the story begins, but I have used as a starting point the date when We Found Love the official video was uploaded to youtube. Because that's when that song felt most
real and I think that's when things started happening and things changed. I'd made The New Deal a few months previously, for me that was like some movie set or prediction for this apocalyptic Olympics
merch stand/opening ceremony or something. With Jessie J. And that was the last sculpture I made, so that might also mark the beginning. Basically it starts roughly a year ago, when the Olympics and
2012 felt just around the corner. And then they happened and now they're over. So I wanted this work to mark the end, or at least, the Olympics closing ceremony can mark the end, and therefore both mark
a beginning, some new beginning. So there's this space in between the first beginning and the new beginning, and I feel weird about it. So this is about that.
