Humanimals, or Hummollusks, is an ongoing project. Shells, life casts, doll parts, and hair are used to create a series of objects or a new species of shelled creatures. These chimeric mutants explore issues surrounding evolution, climate change, the female body and migrational shelters. From Cleo the gallery director Jeanette McCune, "The surreal pairing of human appendages evolving from shells, ornamented sometimes with flocking and crystallization, present a questioning of human origin and our final form. It is an unnerving vision that not only exists for the relationship between humanity and nature but also the possibility of brutality in femininity as the body is cut from its individual identity and given a new residence. These structures can allude to mythology as well, asking the audience to involve their consciousness with manifestations of emotion towards corporeal symbolism found in religious allegories."
