Whether living, dead, domesticated, wild or agricultural; my work focuses on the animal kingdom and their encounters with humankind.
Animals, considered property and assets, are commodified in infinite ways. As society further elevates its status through technology, we increasingly distance ourselves from our organic world, and sever our connection to other sentient beings. Automated and mechanized, we've become indifferent to nature's intelligence, ignoring its innate ability to adapt to the continual stresses of humankind as we strive for further development.
Animals are adept; they are conscious, advanced, and possess faculties far beyond our comprehension. The journey of our evolution will determine whether we are capable of overseeing the animal kingdom with consideration and accountability, or if we will subsist, disconnected, in an artificial environment of our own design.
