I am interested in the idea of transforming institutional spaces of violence through re-imagining them as places of play and possibility.
Covid has exposed the factory farm as a place of contamination and has become seen through a global conscience, as a virus-spreading threat to society. By erasing the subjects of violence and adding the idea of possibility, innocence, imagination and play I want to take a global “emperor has no clothes” situation and imagine that humans can find new possibilities and carve out a different outcome.
