The work ' Anything at all ' explores our relationship with animals, which become more complex than ever through development of present day technology and wide usage of modern means of communication.
Created patchwork is linked to my personal online interaction with the subject of animals.
I was working from the photographs found online showing wild animals in last year's bushfires from around the globe. I juxtaposed such material with drawings based on photographs found on social media through the search #cuteanimals.
y attempt here was to navigate through this very simplified representation of our modern relationship with nature and some of its aspects through the means of drawing. As our general experience become 'enriched' by an online reality, with the mass of unfiltered mass of information, often quickly escaping our attention I was interested in creating work which will hold viewers attention for longer than an online snapshot.
