Self-Awareness

[vimeo 9545477]

SELF AWARENESS --- A key factor in the debate over if humans really are superior over the rest of Animalia. Thinking of finger puppets illustrating the themes I'm currently interested in, and which began through reading So You Think You're Human.
I am currently reading segments of The Animals Reader: The Essential Classic and Contemporary Writings. Today I read John Berger's Why Look at Animals and Gilles Deleuze and Gelix Guattari's Becoming-Animal.
ALSO, Daniella showed me this amazing site to get pre-felted wool from: just fantastic.
Ronald told me to look at The Clangers- also really cool, reminds me of all the American claymations and stop motion animations I saw growing up.
