Statement of Interest. Notes.
I’m fascinated (
obsessed by, perhaps) by the notion of ferality, as described by Merriam-Webster as;
a. of, relating to, or suggestive of a wild beast (feral teeth) (feral instincts).
b. not domesticated or cultivated (feral animals).
c. having escaped from domestication and become wild (feral cats).
This definition pictures a previously domesticated animal that has returned to a natural state; city dogs, ponies, humans who have ‘gone wild‘. One way of thinking about this is a previously colonized creature now living in nonnormative ways, and exhibiting nonnormative traits.
