Developing redaction techniques from previous works and taking the form of cut-up poetry and assemblage, “Cripple” explores the idea of idleness in the context of the reality of how disabled people have been pushed further to the margins of society due to austerity. From the outside it may seem like they are lazy or idle and not deserving of help. However without support they are deprived of the human right to enable them to be part of society. Cripplewas commissioned by Phoenix as part of Idle Index, which invites artists to create screensaver works. The work uses several passages from Frances Ryan’s “Crippled” (2019, Verso Books).
