Mud Hut2005 by Alastair Mackie

Alistair Mackie’s (b.1977) model of Capitol House is made out of mud, straw and horse manure (an ancient building material still used in parts of African and the Indian subcontinent today), and explores how man interacts with nature and our often false ideas of ‘progress’. Alistair decided to depict The Capitol building using it as an emblem for the Western democratic system as a whole – one we have been conditioned to believe represents a ‘civilized world’.
