A large photograph on aluminium of a woman and a small girl in a white room surrounded by pale pink and silver balloons. There are pink cups and tied transparent bags on a table to the right.

'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 recycled poo scenario, in which collecting and gifting poo is part of daily life. The photograph shows a girl giving her gift-wrapped poo to the hostess of a birthday party.
