About the Work
I love the juxtaposition between these two equally naff products. That foam is hugely nostalgic, as is the plastic cane. There's something very satisfying about it put together in that shape.
- Jack Mitchell-Anyon, local business owner and musician, for the June 2021 instalment of the My Choice exhibition series.

For me, it's walking that's a problem, so each of these works represents a step forward in terms of making able-bodied people think about mobility.
- Lauren Lysaght, 2002
