in the summer of 2005 Elspeth Owen took on the persona of Material Woman which she had adopted for an earlier extended performance
in the Taxi Gallery.

leaving home on the day of the summer solstice she was sent first to someone unknown to her and then on from that person to another new one and so on and so on, thereby creating a network or looselink between a succession of strangers.

this journey continued until the end of September 2005.
