Artist Spotlight : Hessam Abrishami


 Hessam brought his artistic interpretive view to the cottontail project. Hessam’s Conejo Cottontail was inspired by the evolving nature of animals. 

- Modern sensibilities have made animals more human like. Pets and animals world-wide are trained to perform and humor us with tricks like circus animals. We expect them to evolve with us like fast paced machines and technology. As we anthropomorphize them, dress them, train them for our convenience we pull them with us in a more human direction that is less humane - pulling them away from their true animal nature.
