Can you hear me?

Filmed at zoos around Australia and New York, Can you hear me? is a collection of videos looking at looking at zoos.

As an institution for looking, zoos confine animals primarily for human observation. A power imbalance exists with human viewers in the dominant position; standing outside the enclosure that confines the subordinated animal. The zoo animal’s primary status becomes that of the non-human animal Other.

Can you hear me? attempts to position the viewer within the video frame, expanding the voyeurism at the zoo beyond the glass dividing animal and human.
