I use my ongoing practice to reciprocally investigate and challenge my own perceptions within a culture of conflicting truths. I question an ability to empathise with other animals on the one hand and disconnect on the other. Forcing these emotions to clash, there is a strange sensation. A push and pull that results in perceptual dissonance. 

Of particular interest are our convoluted relationships with introduced species. Rabbits, in particular, have manifold meaning to us. Through blurring the contextual boundaries between pest, product and friend in a bodily experience I hope to communicate hypocrisies hidden in our everyday cultural experiences.
