Intraspeciation is an exhibition consisting of a body of artwork in support of my written Master’s thesis, titled Intraspeciation Within the Ontological Biosphere.

The works displayed in this exhibition investigate the intuitive connection between human and animal. Ideas of human animality are explored through the innate affinity for other living organisms seen in the concept of biophilia. By examining the relationships between human and nonhuman animals and vegetal/botanical life, my work considers a removal of barriers from preexisting dichotomies between species through notions of interconnectivity. This trajectory of biological exploration aims to establish intimacy and animalism between the human, animal and surrounding biosphere by the use of organic and synthetic material through sculpture, installation and drawing.
