In pairs, create a still image where one of you has a higher status than the other. Show your image to the others and let them guess who is “high” and who is “low”. Discuss why there may be areas of disagreement. Make another image showing high and low status in a different way. Try to make an image where you have equal status and see if the onlookers agree!

To explore status in greater depth, have a look at the National Theatre/Spymonkey video below.
