The project exhibition consisted of seven life sized drawings in carbon pencil, combining the skeletons of animals and humans to create hybridized creatures, representing each of the seven deadly sins: pride, lust, gluttony, sloth, greed, envy and wrath. Each drawing was accompanied by text describing the attributes of each animal, and its relationship with the associated sin.
The purpose was to depict the interconnectedness of life forms with the anatomical integrity of a scientist, while illustrating the grace and beauty found in nature. As humans we feel we have progressed further in our evolution than those in the animal kingdom, even though we are still driven by the same instincts and behaviors. We recognize our need to overcome our impulses by taming our inner beasts as the only means to our spiritual growth, and these drawings demonstrated both the duality of our natures as well as the interplay of forms.
