All 5 participants in this series were asked to undergo a psychological experiment that involved them watching videos regarding animal testing. They were initially selected due to the fact that they themselves have pets, then they were all interviewed prior to this. The results from the interview concluded that they are all against animal testing.
They were filmed whilst watching these videos to capture their reactions. The participants, having to sit in one place and watch these videos, reflect how the animals used in testing are forced to sit in a cage and undergo experiments.
The final photographs are stills taken from each of their videos.
This work was created for the Pilot Major Project module at London South Bank University and exhibited at Borough Road Gallery, London South Bank University in December 2017.
Participants: Natalie Estanqueiro, Anabela da Silva, Jhanny Marmolejo, Liliana Pina & Joanne Bell
