The collage animation draws on a museum’s Ironstone cottage, artefacts and archives to give a playful insight into a woman’s perspective of cottage life during the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. The experimental film explores the role of a housewife, drawing on research from women's experiences in Scunthorpe and nationwide.
This project was created during a six-month artist residency at North Lincolnshire Museum and supported by North Lincolnshire Council and Arts Council England through the Humber Museums Partnership.
The film also screened at Elysium Gallery, Swansea and discussed at BBC Radio Norfolk.

"Tracy rose to the challenges of delivering an Artist in Residence programme during the first national lockdown for Covid-19, creating three fantastic artworks which we are proud to have on show in North Lincolnshire Museum and online. Each piece has interpreted the collection in a new and innovative way, whilst remaining accessible to audiences."
