New Orleans 2019: Playing / crafting

Welcome to the end of the world. In this Kafka-esque dystopia, the government has gathered all remaining animals in order to form the Animal Factorization Initiative. Now you live in an apartment inside a whale. This project is a commentary on how humans interact with their environment and the other living beings within it. Inspired by works like The Companion Species Manifesto by Donna Haraway and The Mushroom at the End of the World by Anna Tsing.
