Alertism - Kezia Reddick

Welcome to the Alertism exhibition, featuring artistic and literary works that were inspired by the Emergency Alert test message that was sent to people with a mobile device on Sunday 23rd April at 3pm.

Kezia Reddick is our artist of the day today. She has been exhibiting with us since 2010, taking part in many of our magnetic art shows, when CollectConnect first hit the streets. She is currently an art student with a very bright future. Our First Responder is Coral Chambers, read her response under Kezia's image.

My 1st reaction bless him ( the little rat) he's trying to understand the images on the mobile - They changed rapidly when I saw the newspaper above him. I  thought someone is going to hit him with it !  This triggered thoughts of anger. Thoughts of  speciesium, the way people treat animals based on their species, how if he was a puppy the reaction would be different. Then I saw the images on the phone he is looking at.  This made me think how little we think about our actions  and how they affect the animals that are just trying to live their lives and survive. So the image sparked initially, joy, that quickly turned to deep sadness.


Keziah Reddick is an artist who works across a range of media. She has a particular interest in telling stories through her art. She has a passion for stories from ancient civilisations.
