Entry Description

Between Gods and Animals is a multi-angle exploration into the Caucasian heteronormative male’s endless pursuit to sustain power and inability to live by their own set of codes. Using the Renaissance era as an origin point, this work examines the forces that have historically perpetuated the myth of masculinity in an attempt to preserve social dominance. The physical book has an embossed section, ash pressed into pages and several smaller books sewn into the main sequence, creating one single piece.
