Breeding Pigeon Installation- Concept by Artist Patricia Shrigley Inspiration taken from Feral Estate an upcoming stop motion animation. Exploring the Media and Governments misrepresentation of the so-called disenfranchised, dispossessed and much maligned under-class. These attitudes help further social divisions; terminology such as feral youth and breeding underclass are damaging and it has been shown that stereotypes directly affect people's sense of self.For example Lord Flight raised his concerns that benefit cuts will "encourage the poor to breed like pigeons" at a Conservative conference.
