Our final project took place on Saturday. A collaboration between Jeremy, Amanda, Edgar and myself. We picked up Edgar and headed to Digicel as a backdrop to create a video and narrative that described the introduced in the landscape. Edgar had interpreted this as the Indian minor bird. This worked especially for Jeremy as he had concerns for the mutton bird as a mass consumer of ocean plastics.

We were honoured to be invited to Edgar's Nakamal where he was to perform the new narrative in the natural setting and in the natural medium of the ash of the fire of the Nakamal. We were a captured audience.
