This work shows a concern for the natural environment. The hybrid creature represents an exaggerated concern for scientific advancement in genetics and human cloning. The human and hybrid figures are in conversation, discussing the way of the world. The hybrid creature hovers between multiple identities. The viewer is asked to question whether the scene they are looking at belongs or is intrusive.
