Animal Lover is an art practice by Julie Andreyev and collaborative others that investigates more-than-human creativity. Projects rely on interspecies participation and collaboration to explore seeing, listening, and feeling for ecological and compassionate potential. At the core of the art processes are care-ethics practiced in each encounter, respecting the autonomy of free-living and companion animals. The outcomes are manifest as new media, sound art, performance and relational art.
