Julie Andreyev’s art practice, called Animal Lover, www.animallover.ca, explores more-than-human creativity using methods of ethics of care, respect, and play. The projects are output as new media performance, video installation, generative art, and relational aesthetics. The Animal Lover projects have been shown internationally, and are supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Andreyev recently completed her PhD at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, supported by a Joseph Armand Bombardier Doctoral Scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Her dissertation, Biophilic Ethics and Creativity with More-Than-Human Beings, is an interdisciplinary investigation into an expansion of ethics for more-than-human beings, examined through interspecies relational creativity in art processes. Andreyev is Associate Professor in the Faculty of Design + Dynamic Media at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
