The installation is based on phenomenological research conducted within a pig slaughterhouse. The observations I made are translated through materials and techniques from the slaughterhouse. Repurposing these materials for an eye to eye encounter with its caretaker. 

The shape of the sculpture is based on a twelve legged toy seen in the stables. The pig toy functions as a diversion and reduces aggressive behaviour such as ear and tail biting.
