‘Digital C’ prints of visuals produced to accompany Wheels on Fire, commissioned by the Science Museum and Apples and Snakes as part of the Faltered States show. Wheels on Fire was performed at the Science Museum on 21 March 2003 and at Battersea Arts Centre on
28 March 2003 as part of Faltered States, and as a solo show at the Theaterhaus Gessnerallee in Zurich on 18 January 2004.

Faltered States was a collaboration between the Science Museum and Apples and Snakes which formed part of the Naked Science series. Faltered States aimed to produce unique works of art and poetry that explored our society's perception of normality.

The Science Museum gave four artists — ju90, Mat Fraser, Patience Agbabi and Rachel Pantechnicon — unprecedented access to its stores, in order to produce work in response to objects in its collections. The wheelchairs pictured are part of the Wellcome Collection, stored at Wroughton.

A script and photographs of Wheels on Fire at Battersea Arts Centre are available on www.ju90.co.uk
