Creators: Snook, Ashley
Abstract:

Intraspeciation Within the Ontological Biosphere investigates the intuitive connection between human and animal. Ideas of human animality are explored through biophilia, the innate affinity between living organisms. By examining the relationships between human and nonhuman animals and vegetal/botanical life, this thesis argues for a removal of barriers from dichotomies between species to enable species interconnectivity. This artistic exploration aims to establish intimacy and animalism between the human, animal and surrounding biosphere by the use of organic and synthetic material in sculpture and drawing.
