“Within our work there is a strong connection between the reality that surrounds us and some kind of escapism to a made-up world,” littlewhitehead explain. “This made-up world is the construct of a dialogue between the two of us, which infuses scenes from an encyclopaedic range of references, from video nasties, to current events, and subconscious musings. It is in that world, unlike the one we actually inhabit, where we can fulfil these sinister desires.” Sentient Orbs pictures a child rising to the ceiling, subsumed by a bouquet of balloons, transferring the delights of pleasure and kindness to suggestions of greed and malice.
