The human context of animals

 

This is a visual exploration into the norms and values we have as a society in the way that we keep and coexist with our pets. After researching this topic in the Netherlands I became interested in the way how we keep our animals within artificial environments. It has become normalized for us to see animals in small cages. The question that I have for our society is: what do we find acceptable for our animals, and how small can their cages be?
