Goat Man … Or holiday from being human Goat18-Thomas_Thwaites-photo-Tim_Bowditch

 

Goat14-Thomas_Thwaites-photo-Tim_BowditchGoat8-Thomas_Thwaites-photo-Tim_BowditchI tried to become a goat to escape the angst inherent in being a human. The project became an exploration of how close modern technology can take us to fulfilling an ancient human dream: to take on characteristics from other animals. But instead of the ferocity of a bear, or the perspective of a bird, the characteristic most useful in modern life is something else; being present in the moment perhaps.

Anyway I ended up in the Alps, on four legs, at a goat farm, with a prosthetic rumen strapped to my chest, eating grass, and becoming a goat.
