Animate Animal

May 24, 2009

In a recent project i was asked to combine the stuffed animals of the museum with the living human life form.  In the beginning I struggled with a topic.  However, after some deliberation I reached the idea of showing how ignorant we are to wonder a round a museum staring at these dead animals, paying attention only to the way they look and not where they come from or there general personals.  I have emphasized this idea by zoning in on parts of a human body together with parts of an animal body as we do not study the human body as objectively as we seem to an animal in a museum.
