This project was part funded by A NEW DIRECTION. DYSPLA worked with young people from Lewisham College and Havering College in 2016 to create ‘false narratives’ by way of teaching the students story structure.

Author of Expectations, is a Video installation presented on two Screens. The video installation is made up of a series of stylized interviews with young people, that deliberately manipulates structure and perception. The video installation playfully juxtaposes multiple narratives to challenge the audience to fight against their own preconceptions. The work highlights the social, educational and parental expectations that our protagonists, experience in their everyday lives, as well as asking the question, “who is the author” of their potential.
