This work is a dissection of the human behaviour to reflect on our relationship with nature and animals. The contradictions from explaining the bond that brings us together and tears us apart from the natural world is fascinating. Some animals we love, some we eat. We harm nature just as we overprotect it, pondering the boundaries between fantasy and reality, and what lies in between.
