Project : Empathropomorphic

Laura PetersAnimals, Art Photos, Thoughts and Ideas

It’s a project that requires a bit of explanation, but the intent should become clear very quickly. It is a collection of objects, plants and animals that I’ve encountered. And for them, I am supplying a voice (or perspective) with short poems or conversations accompanying each photo.

Empathropomorphic – it’s a compound word that I’ve defined as “the understanding and sensitivity to the feelings and thoughts of objects that have been (or are commonly) defined using human attributes.” It’s created from the combination of empathy and anthropomorphism. The definitions of each individual word are included on the main page of this gallery-style project.

I hope you’ll visit and enjoy and I will hope to hear your feedback!
