"In March, the unemployment rate in the UK hit 2.67 million, higher than it has been for over a decade. Prime Minister David Cameron made a public announcement saying that while any increase in unemployment is a 'tragedy', the figures actually show mixed figures. Frankly, this leads me to believe that either he has not looked at the figures or he is completely deluded. The number of people out of work for more than a year has increased by 85,000 to 772,000 and unemployment among 16-24-years-olds rose by 11,000 to 926,000 making the younger generation over 1/3 of the people unable to find work. These figures have led me to create a public art campaign for the awareness of the current unemployment crisis to try to provoke further action."
