Inspired by the 1960s sitting room at North Lincolnshire Museum, Margaret explores a housewife's role, thoughts and feelings. Through an internal monologue she communicates her thoughts, worries, boredom, repetition and frustrations, moving from chores that need doing to thoughts on women's lib.
The film combines location shots of the artist as Margaret with green screen animations and AI avatars. Research was taken from local and national publications, interviews with local women and interviews from Housewife by sociologist Ann Oakley.
The film is commissioned by North Lincolnshire Museum.
' Tracy has produced a film that is playful yet thought-provoking, and challenging yet sensitive to the subject matter. The presentation of the film in a television cabinet, in-keeping with the 1960s living room,
finishes the work off perfectly'.
Madeleine Gray, Curator, North Lincolnshire Museum
