  1. Pocket Boar is an interactive work in progress created as part of an artist residency at Derby Arboretum. The work will be shown at The Orangery, Arboretum Arts in November 2023. Using Unity and a pixel art aesthetic, the work calls back to the hight of the virtual pet fad in the late 1990s, evoking games such as Tamagotchi. The work reimagines Derby Arboretum's Florentine Boar statue as an interactive pet. The player is tasked with taking care of the statue - they are able to feed, play and interact with the now animate Florentine Boar.
