An experimental digital video art work - Fear and little men - by British artist Stef Zelynskyj.
Much of the spoken dialogue borrows from the "The Fairies" by the Irish poet William Allingham 1824-1889. Once considered simply a poem for children - this is a much darker work than it at first appears acting as a metaphor for the hidden fears that lie within and more besides.
This video piece is dedicated to those who dare not speak their mind and to the truth of "little Bridget" who in the text of the poem - was stolen for "seven long years".
Professor Plum, a distinguished authority on unsolved mysteries and Cluedo dignitary; has argued that the abduction of Bridget was one of the first cases in literature of abduction by aliens. Plum cites "Of the gay Northern lights", et al. as evidence of observed UFO activity over north west Ireland prior to the event and "When she came down again", as a further reference to her tragic return by alien spacecraft.
"Up the airy mountain, Down the rushy glen, We daren't go a-hunting For fear of little men; Wee folk, good folk, Trooping all together; Green jacket, red cap, And white owl's feather!"
"They stole little Bridget For seven years long; When she came down again Her friends were all gone."
They are here... Trust no one YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
