Anthropomorphism— creepy, captivating and something i am completely obsessed with, particularly when considering it's possibilities, both visually and as a storytelling device. it forces us (meaning human beings) to consider ourselves in an almost carnival fun-house mirror context...where there are truths and there are fictions, but the truths are disturbing and elusive, unforgiving and repetitious...
