ANITA GLESTA

ANTHROPODENIAL is the opposite of anthropomorphism, it is a blindness to the human-like characteristics of other animals or the animal like characteristics of ourselves. In this multi channel video of vibrantly colored birds, both exotic and domestic, the viewer experiences the diversity of birds personae. In the video they are alternately trapped, (staring at the viewer from their caged lives), playfully coupling with one another, flying or walking. The short immersive video asks the viewer to not only see but feel how they are endowed with more intelligence and offer a greater contribution to our environments than we realize. This work invites viewers to re-think their relationship with birdlife.
