Fantasia of a Common Gull


Digital video, surround sound, 5 minutes 34 seconds

You are Alice and you are dreaming, but it’s all very queer. The white rabbit is a plain Aussie seagull — and the mad tea party is poolside with three dazzling transvestite mermaids. Can the Common Gull keep up appearances, or will he drown in a karaoke nightmare? What have they taken?
