U.F.O: Unidentified Foreign Object is the first of a three part series called The Artist Is Kind Of Present.

In this first instalment, the idea to be homeless is explored, metaphorically and physically.

U.F.O follows a Martian stranded on earth, far away from home and his loved ones. Having to bide his time whilst saving money to return home.

The Martian, whose name is Charles Treka, is inspired by George Orwell and his book Down and Out in Paris and London (1933).

Or is U.F.O looking at mental health issues stemming from homelessness and/or causing homelessness and to be lost in bureaucratic systems?
