"Monkeys in your face" by Pete Woo
The work is a collection of monkey portraits. Part of a monkey anthology book project called 'Monkeys in your face' and is a collection of monkey images and stories written by a mix of local writers. Like dance and music, I hope that the combination of story and Image will be a way of transferring the present human condition to a post-humanist ‘Great Ape’.
This changes our perception of both ourselves and a possible future.
