Portrayed through a satirical discourse of visual imagery, the intent of the work is to draw attention to human technological advancements and society's reliance and dependence on those advancements.
Illustrating our reliance and inability to survive in a modern reality, without existing as a parasitical species, the work reveals a distancing from reality (brought on by consumer greed) which has resulted in a culture void of responsibility and consciousness.
The physical characteristics and good nature of the dairy cow highlight its modification at the hands of society and its use as a beast of burden worldwide.
