First exhibited as part of "Reality Cheque", At The Vanishing Point, June 2009

Agricultural revolution, industrial revolution, a century of technology-led revolutions:
when does the heart get a turn? 
Not that it needs a revolution…
But we do, so busy feathering our nests and ignoring its ineffably beautiful song,
going cheep, cheap.… to any who’ll ask why they cross the road...  or how.
