Life on earth is its own Inter-species Collaboration. Gaining awareness of our inter-dependence with all living things non-human,in my humble opinion, is the first step in recognizing that we as a species are a part of Nature. No more, no less. The attitude of Us vs.Them is in need of dis-solution, for our survival and their survival are intertwined.
Contemporary artists working in the domain of inter-species collaboration attempt to communicate this concept through creating aesthetic experiences that investigate an awareness of what we perceive as other.
