FUTURE MAP GRADUATE EXHIBITION November 2009

My film, Pigsy in Space (D&AD Student Awards Winner 2009) will be shown as part of Future Map 2009 - an exhibition in Hoxton Square, championing emerging creative talent.

When reviewing the exhibition for Murmur Art, Josie Breese wrote this:
"Some artists that naturally stand out - Pigsy in Space by Sam Pilling and Chris Lee is not only conspicuous for it's technically accomplished puppetry but also seems to be a clever comment on the imbalance between expectation, consumption and equivalent reality"
