Rowney has reimagined these objects within his artworks to tell the stories of their observations.

Kathryn Henne, Adam Henshke, Jeremy Youde

Fear may be misplaced – think of our outsized fear of sharks, or it may be misused – as when fears of terrorism are used to justify curtailing civil liberties and invading privacy. This panel examines how fear has been misused and misplaced to justify either regulation or inaction.
