Shower is a video made with two teenage girls whilst artist-in-residence at the South London Gallery, in 2007. Presented here, projected into a small snow-globe, the video is a never-ending cycle of pillow fights and tense feathery fantasy.

Also on display was a video, Gulp, made by Sonia Boyce, developed from a story told by Sarah Cole about a school playground, a water fountain, a nesting pigeon and some rather resourceful children...presented a the Tate Modern during Towards an Avant Gardist Conception of Gallery Education (podcast 1 min 11 secs into recording)
