Here is the statement for the work:
Festal is a sculptural installation which features video footage of the artist disguised in a fantastical costume, and the costume itself which is displayed as a sculptural form. The resulting installation incorporates projection, lighting and mirrors to create a theatrical feedback loop between the footage of the performance and the life the costume has without a performer inhabiting it.
