'Canned Fish' is another cynical observation on the state of global food industry - a full-length version of 'Fish Can' with a twist in the tail. A factory-fresh fish supper for the digital age which took nearly twenty years to prepare!

The picture of the sardine can was taken on good, old-fashioned film in the UK in the early nineties and the rather sad fish was 'captured' digitally in Thailand in 2011.

The two images were happily married in a computer in the same year and are still together.

Materials used:  a sense of humour, one lugubrious fish, one sardine can, a Sony NEX-5, a computer, a sheet of Crystal Archive paper, light, silver, impeccable craftsmanship, dedication, blood, sweat & tears.
