Research

 

My work uses artistic medium to explore the relationships between human and non-human animals meant for consumption. It compares the experience of marginalized people with factory farmed animals, through the lens of personal narrative, animation, collaged video and installation. I examine the concepts of consent, freedom of choice, and the legitimacy of life using art as a vehicle to tackle these difficult subject maters. The installations I create offer an immersive experience for viewers to explore other perspectives in relation to their own. Being part of an interdisciplinary program allowed me to explore the psychological and scientific perceptions of this topic which comes through in my work. I explore this controversial topic with historical context, scientific backing, compassion, and fresh eyes, it is with this representation that my art brings new meaning to this topic.
