The animal presence to me is the link between ourselves and the natural world. We look at a dog and the dog looks back at us. During that moment we know that we are not the only consciousness at work in the universe. The world of earth is an inhabited place, full of many living entities that do not and cannot see reality in the same way that we do...Reality itself, then, is chaos that has been made presentable by the limitations of human perception...I am trying to show reality as it actually is, as a rupture through the fabric of our human consciousness.
