Cocklepickers (2005)

Interactive story dealing with the tragedy of the chinese migrant workers who died in Morecambe Bay, Lancashire, in 2004. The interactive approach offers a non-linear way of exploring all of the issues, and each person has a different experience, and effectively creates their own story.

There are many separate and interconnected strands to this story: the experience of the workers, the bosses exploiting cheap work, the reactions of local people, the families in China, the media/political reactions and economics. 

These strands are parallel narratives through the story. Each one is small view of the bigger picture, giving a different perspective. Each page of the story is an illustration.
