Selectors' Comments:
Mary Ferguson's little pink bunnies add post-grad philosophical musing to Steve Bishop's basement chemistry. Her rabbit redux was, we all agreed, 'pure genius'. Just when you want the bunnies to shut up and be still, they lob you their wisdom. Don't blink or you'll miss the smarts.

Artist's Statement:
My work takes the form of abstracted drawings and short animations, where objects and landscapes are barely recognisable and it is the assumed function and nature of objects themselves that is questioned. 'Creation' is a short film in which a whole new world is conjured through nothing more than line and colour.
