Ontological curiosity drives my study; how a body feels metaphysically, supposing existence and being are predicated on consciousness and perception. The human anthropomorphizing of animals is evidence of our need to rationalize the connection we have with them. For me this association, or recognition, is a signifier for empathic concern, not just in terms of our global destruction of species and environment, but to ourselves, and to each other.
