Do pigs deserve better treatment in our modern industrialised food system simply because they’re smart? Empathy and compassion for all animals transcends intelligence: they are all deserving for their own sake – not here for us, but rather with us - even the rare blue rabbit.
LEFSON: 'From the moment the ‘ear loops’ and dot appeared, I knew this was going to be something spectacular. It’s not just an obvious form, there’s a real sense of movement and energy. Another moment of relief for filming every piece: who would have believed that a pig painted this… a bunny. Perfection.'
