A Brief Stroll into the Urbanscape: Pest Animals
"In the city, non-domesticated nonhuman animals are denizens, unwelcomed. However, the imaginary lives and images of animals delight us. Huang declares that with the distancing of ourselves physically from unbounded nonhuman animals, we find places for them in fiction, in consumer-capitalistic culture and in the virtual realms."
Surface over Depth: Pagan Inter-Species Art
"Dead or alive, animals bodies serve as canvases for meanings, interpretations, and symbols to play out, thus stressing the incapability of conceiving of animals as creators rather than objects woven into networks of human creativity. The animal body becomes the raw material for aesthetic and intellectual pleasure, a tool that is meant to provoke reflection on diverse matters, from death to our own animality."
