This piece was an experimental precursor to a lifetime ambition: to live as an observable Homo Sapiens at a zoo for some time. This is not 'monkeying,' but based on a firm conviction that there is something valuable and phenomenal to be learned from being allowed to view the individual traits of human behaviour similarly to that of other animals.
In Bundle Of Joy, an audience is invited to enter a studio in which my family and I spent an hour in a cage together, with no specific instructions. It was lit so that the audience were insvisible to us. After some time, a 'keeper' threw in densely wrapped parcels of food and stimulus. What is interesting is that in true zoo-style, people were free to come and go as they pleased, yet everyone stayed, moved by the interactions, the subtle nuances of connection that only a family can possess.
