The idea of a coat made out of bits of conversation from around Birmingham, representing how multicultural the city is, appeals to me, as does the idea of a creature made from mechanical parts, as it emphasizes the material, industrial world. I feel the biggest difference between Birmingham and the countryside is its influx of industrial components, so I am going to develop the idea of a puppet made from features of the city.

Cities grew and developed around industry and over the years Birmingham became widely known for its metalwork and engineering.  Although much of the city centre has now evolved into service industry, its primary history still exists in further out in the surrounding area.
