In 2012, Duguid optioned the rights to James Agee’s script, The Tramp’s New World, originally written for Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp character. Duguid’s project, entitled The Tramp Project, is made up of a series of events, exhibitions, and performances. For this exhibition, Duguid is using the gallery as an extension of her studio to create a scene in which a parade for an atomic bomb launch is produced. She has installed a scenic backdrop, a prop plane and bomb creating a scene in which a town excitedly prepares for the launch of an earth-destroying bomb. “The set” will be used for a series of interactive performances and the resulting documentation will be used in The Tramp Project .
