Given the importance of culture in the intertwined relationships between animals and humans, how can spatial practice consider cultural complexities while preferencing the wellbeing of animals in unfamiliar ecologies?
A project which situates itself within the social critique of the inextricably complex relationships between animals and humans within the Anthropocene, Echo Echo aims to formulate a spatially driven proposition which unveils the current cultural and ethical attitudes of the dolphin drive hunting practice in Japan before successively emancipating dolphins which are sent into captivity.
