Are there borders, such boundaries, where nature ends and humanity begins, or so, where does man end and nature begins?
As we face the ecological crisis and major biodiversity  loss— the wildlife habitats, natural ecosystems, and engines we depend on begin to collapse.

The very fabric of our cities, our livelihoods, and the wildness of our nature crumble with its end.
The Animals We Are is an investigation and the reimagination of the wild. To see anew, the beasts inside and outside of us, ultimately constrained within the ecological and social spatial boundaries that transcend not only our evolutionary biology, but the living spaces we render and navigate in— the forests, the wetlands, the oceans, the mountains, and the cities we’ve built upon. 

For it begins in the paradox of the human condition— in the duality of life itself.

We kill to survive. We destroy to create. We demolish to build. We die to be reborn. 

This paradox of our contradicting reality, where separation and disconnection, rifts from the natural world.

Man against nature. Nature against God. Predator and Prey.

Eco versus Ego. Mind against Bodies.

Where are the lines drawn, and where are these blurred?

Through life, death, and reconnection.

to see the man in the animal, and the animal in the man.
we are but one.
