full title: Channelling (Formica rufa/William Melvyn Hicks)

2003, fibreglass, acrylic, wire, acrylic paint, cd player and speaker, and 40 minute audio cd.

A scaled-up depiction of the reincarnation of US comedian Bill Hicks as a wood ant. From a hidden speaker comes the low, high-pitched 'voice' of the ant as it runs through one of Hicks last stand-up gigs in the early 90's (actually performed by the artist and digitally altered). Most recently exhibited in 'Art from Glasgow' at Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin, 2005.
