My current project aims to explore the ever-changing perspective of our human and animal relationship and how our lives interweave with sentient beings and how these personal relationships differ so dramatically from our conflicting perspective of animal welfare as a whole. While juggling this conflicting perspective of animal welfare vs what is on supermarket shelves and therefore what is in the fridge at home, I am interested in recognizing the thought-provoking act hidden by a veil of unaccountability of abusive treatment inflicted by individuals on farm animals destined for consumption in the economically powerful food industry sector. In this body of work, I interweave ideas about the impact of deliberate destruction to wildlife by trophy hunters selfishly endangering the survival of wild animal species for future generations to follow and aim to open the conversation of self-reflection into our own personal attitude towards ownership of animals.
