STRAIGHT FROM THE HENS' MOUTH

WHAT
A collection of interviews, reminiscences and drawings that attempt to understand, implement and reflect upon the practice of communicating with animals intuitively.

WHY
There are those who believe in the equal importance of all species and the possibility for them to communicate with one another telepathically. By taking this idea seriously, the project questions a humanocentric worldview in an age when this stance seems to threaten the future of ecosystems.

HOW
Clara Montrieul spent time getting to know a group of telepathic animal communicators. With their help, she quizzed her own two chickens to discover their design preferences and made a research book based on their answers.

QUOTE
The first book ever to be co-designed with hens.
