hibernator: untitled ( pearl )

about this work:

The hibernators are a species of animals i made from pictures of small common pets. Cats, guinea pigs, rabbits and dogs. The kind you find in many homes and that are beloved and pampered by their owners.
I try to make the animals on the photo's allive again by cutting and folding in the paper.
Instead of releasing them I restrain them again in a new shape. This way i turn them into creatures that are silent like stones, but are also showing a tension. The moment before awaking. They want to move, they have tasted freedom!
