Photograph by Jason Evans from the installation 'Is this your future?' by Dunne and Raby, 2004. A large photograph on aluminium of two adults and a small girl, all in blue uniforms, against a white background. The adults face us, the man's hand raised, behind a fence, while the little girl faces out of the left of the frame in front of the fence, also waving. She stands on grass with a small cat to her right. Blue plastic bottles stand dotted on both sides of the fence.
'Is this your future' is a twelve-part installation commissioned from Fiona Raby and Tony Dunne for the Energy Gallery at the Science Museum in 2004. The installation imagined three possible scenarios for alternative future energy use: hydrogen, recycled human poo, and animal blood. Each scenario is presented through a photograph of a family using the alternative energy, alongside 2 or 3 objects. The photographs were taken by Jason Evans, the objects were produced or sourced by Dunne & Raby.
This photograph forms part of the hydrogen scenario, in which a little girl earns her pocket money by selling hydrogen. The photograph shows her being waved off by her parents.
