Scarcity Sue and Nothing to Do is a response to a 3-day discussion workshop on Scarcity lead by artist, Sarah Brown. Over the three days, several themes were repeated such as perception, myth, abstraction, and materiality. In response to the talks, Slater wrote a short tale in the format of an audio “read-along-book”. However, in the instructions prior to the story, the narrator suggests that the chimes (usually sounded to indicate that one should turn the page) are to help you feel along with the story. As the sounds and story are read, listeners are asked to examine their moods and consider how they are being manipulated as it plays out.
