To make the photo series, I took the dead-live animals out of museums or taxidermy shops and put them into outdoor environments, decontextualizing these animal-like representations to form fictive narratives. 

The boundary between nature and culture are blurred, as humans have turned the whole eco system into an apparatus of production while animals provide materials for education, scientific research, food industry, entertainment, etc.  In these photos, The scenes of animals wandering in cities signify the overlap between human environments and natural habitats, suggest the fact that human civilization is achieved by exploiting nature resources.
