Abstract

The Animal Factories series pursues an ongoing interest in the role of art in communicating issues surrounding the ethics of human-animal relationships in regards to ‘farm’ animals. It is Watt’s hope that upon viewing the images of these "Animal Factories", you as a viewer, will think about the source of the eggs, chicken or pig meat you might choose to eat. Perhaps next time you drive past one of these industrial farms you might stop and think about what, or rather, who, might be housed inside, and what conditions these sentient creatures might be enduring in the name of cheap meat or eggs.
