“There is so much entertainment made for kids that is equally exciting and terrifying. Perhaps due to the exaggerated gestures, hyper-saturated colours and often psychedelic storylines, so many of the children’s tv shows I watched as a kid scared the living daylights out of me but simultaneously drew me back every day for more - Barney, The Ferals, Johnson and Friends. During the festive season this also extended to the Christmas pageant. The floats are transfixing! Each one easily as big as a church in my memory. Their lolling heads, people standing atop waving like queens - sometimes coming as close so as to high five - but mostly staying in their lane - like a convoy of visiting royals passing through as a detour in a quest from The Never-Ending Story. And they’re heading towards the David Jones Magic Cave.

If you go (or went) to the Magic Cave, or any shopping mall Santa booth,you’ll know there’s lines of thrilled kids waiting their turn to sit on Santa’s Lap to ask for whatever it is. And their parents waiting to get a picture of their children. But a quick internet search will tell you that although this photographic tradition has been hugely popular for decades, there are far more images available of children crying on Santa’s lap than of children smiling. I wanted to make something that reflected for me this combined feeling of cheer, alarm, excitement and otherworldly-ness that the pageant had for me. Merry Christmas.”
