Artist Statement

This exhibition aims to explore the implicit and dysfunctional hierarchies that separate human from animal. By making the overlooked or invisible hyper visible, this exhibit questions our relationships with the natural world and how our place in it is tied up in what we see as valuable. By making the micro, macro, we challenge hierarchy, as space and scale play a large role in how we associate worth.
