My Heart is a Beast

I happened upon it by chance just behind the Auckland Arts Gallery. Later I found out that it was a performance, part of the “Living Room Art at Home in the CBD” called “My Heart is a Beast”. A sort of a dance performance evoking the enigmatic presence of the half-human half-stag creature whose wild spirit blends into everyday urban life. It was supposed to asks us to consider ourselves in the city, a place where the beast no longer belongs. It wanted us to consider what civilisation means and how far we have travelled from animal to civilised human. Questions apart, it was a thrill, and it was fun. I’ll publish some more photos in the following couple of days.

  1. The questions are the tough part. How far have we traveled?

    Thanks for participating in the Daily Photo Map. A thumbnail of your latest photo now appears on the map.

    Happy foraging through the wilds of city life (smile).

  2. Great shot. Nice selective desaturation. It looks like a spread in a high fashion magazine.
