My work is underpinned by concerns with anthropomorphism and anthropocentrism. My aim is to explore the attribution of human characteristics to animals, and the manner in which each of us positions ourselves as the centre of all things. I try to consider the way we shape animals, and we shape their meaning and to illuminate the relationships between human and non human animals and to ask how these relationships occupy anthropocentric space within the contexts of ethics, history, science and politics.
