This series of non-human photographs was created through the use of ‘bait cameras’ set up in rural locations in Sweden. These cameras switch to infra-red in low light situations, and are fitted with motion sensors, that trigger the camera to start recording or photographing. Various wild animals pass in front of its lens; wild boar, deer, badgers, rabbits. Every now and then a cat appears. In winter, the camera at times records falling snow and heavy rain. These photographs are all part of a project that investigates non-human experiences and activities, focusing heavily on the animal subject, but also involving the nature of the camera itself. It uses sets of concepts from philosophy in order to think-through processes and ideas in my art practice, in particular Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of becoming-animal.

Alongside this series of photographs is a machine narrative – Pig from HeLL – created through an automated text generator and read out through a text-to-speech application, further exploring narratives and narrative creation that sit outside that of the human.
