ANIMALIA SUM: I am animals. I eat animals.
This duality also exists in Bianca Kennedy & The Swan Collective’s virtual reality experience, which deals with the future of the human food supply. In a few hundred years, natural disasters and scarcity of resources will force our society to eat insects. High-quality proteins and unsaturated fatty acids are ideal nourishment, and special molecular compounds within deliver new antibiotics. Using virtual reality glasses, the observer slips into the minds of the animals and experiences the promise of salvation from the other side: gaping human mouths and overcrowded bug farms. In turn the insects advocate for the consumption of whales. Why should an individual whale be more valuable than a billion friendly beetles? The artists combine sensitive portrayals of insects with bittersweet visions of the future.
