In Pericula: At Risk

A performer is filmed inside a Life Science Museum wearing a hybrid costume created from prints of bones, horns, shells and corals – objects preserved and classified in the museum collections. The soundtrack is of children reciting the names of different species currently on the red list, which are all in danger of extinction. The animated film explores themes of separateness and inter-connection between human and non-human life.
