Animals! presents a set of images and texts without apparent connection. The texts were taken out of easy-science books for families, popular in the 70’s, and approach subjects related with adolescence, food or old age among humans. The images show anthropomorphised animals and animalized human beings in constant interaction. In this apparent chaos, a message appears: The instinct is gone but appetite remains. Man tries to move away from the rest of the animal kingdom and in this anxiety he forgets the essential: its nature. Yes, we also make part of Linnaeus’ Systema Naturae.
Opening the volume, a fragment of Darwin’s 1872 book, The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals. In Animals!, José Feitor deepens the concept of graphical appropriation, using in a random way appropriated images and texts in a unique combination. Chance and concept mix in this graphic project.
