An artwork comprising two sculptural groupings, ‘Peace’ and ‘War’, each consisting of twenty-four cut-out MDF figures on a timber structure. These are made using the technique of photo-sculpture and covered with glassine. The circular chipboard studio structure used in the photosculpture process was part of a participatory event at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, in two sections.

There are two digital videos showing drone footage from this event, and the fragments of a ceramic invalid feeder cup, formerly part of an Open Museum First World War handling kit, exploded in a bomb disposal unit in Belgium, with a conservation report written prior to explosion.
