This project explores how the animal industry often curates, distracts from, or prevents human contact with farmed animals, especially evident in the design of animal transport trucks. It delves into how both animals and humans exploit these structures, originally created due to their shared potential and interconnectedness (Verbundenheit). This focus highlights the critical intersections where the hidden realities of animal farming become most apparent, revealing the complex dynamics of human-animal interactions.
