We Are All The Same But Different
We Are All The Same But Different reveals the systematic suffering of industrially farmed animals. Presenting viewers with the realities of animal agriculture, it asks them to challenge their current attitudes and reach new conclusions about how human society treats animals it deems consumable property.
The work includes stop-motion animation, footage of animals growing up inside the factory farm system, and an experiential, interactive installation component. The artist’s own story about the inner workings of factory farming offers viewers a personal narrative and relationship to her subject. Based on a foundation of activism, the work encourages a different approach by viewers who leave the installation with a change of heart and a desire to create positive transformation in the world.
