Animal Lover is an art practice by Julie Andreyev and collaborative others that investigates more-than-human creativity—with dogs, bees, crows, fishes, trees, and forest communities. 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.
