2021, research project
Beasts Bypassing consists of an extensive research into the currently shifting boundaries between human and animal habitats. Zooming in on the wolf will allow me to zoom out on how natural habitats are always subordinate to human politics. By creating a superhuman perspective on natural habitats, I will explore new narratives through stories, interviews and field recordings, which will result in a series of audio essays on imagining the cohabitation of humans and wolves.
More detailed information about the project can be found here.
