Over the course of my year filming in parks, I was struck by the images we see in public on a daily basis.

The sheer number of male versus female figures.

The bodies we view as heroic and those we see as weak.

The messages conveyed by these bodies.

Before radio and television statues were a way of advertising ideas, from religious morals to national loyalty.

Many unspoken messages exist in the form of statues in the public spaces of Berlin. Visions of colonialism, mythological moral tales, memories of struggle and loss.

While Berlin has invested in telling sharing its history but only specific, government sanctioned narratives.

This project aims to expand the narratives we see in public.
