« Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is the lord of all the animals.»
Animal Farm, George Orwell

This project uses the structure of hierarchy and power that frames the food chain to show the human species as both creator and victim of a system characterized by limited possibilities, tacit demands and pre-established standards. The works analyze the blurred roles of man-food-animals emphasizing the alienation of the human essence.
