The third two-part programme in a six-part series about art being commissioned and made for people's homes. Two artists and their chosen "clients" are featured. The two parts are: `Chris Ofili meets Anthony Ismond, prison inmate' (Director: Janet Lee), and `Brad Lochore meets Anya Hurlbert, vision scientist' (Director: Flavia Rittner). In the first, artist Chris Ofili uses paint, glitter, photos and varnished elephant dung to create a painting for his client. In the second, artist Brad Lochore creates a work of painted shadows for his client who also makes up shadow images, using a computer in order to understand how the brain works.
