Where are We going explores relationship between humans and animals, suffering and loss through symbolic and metaphoric gestures. While humans are regarded as the cultural animals, animals are often seen as another kind of people: the other, the animal other. This work expresses longing for re-connection from both humans and animals, striving to find a harmonious relationship through an animistic worldview. It reflects on our colonial roots of the wildlife and nature, questioning how wildlife and nature have been through from a symbol of a divine power in ancient time to a commodity for sale in nowadays. Through retracing our culture’s engagements with animals, I hope to expand horizons in order to better understand our roots and consequences of marginalizing our animals and nature.
