About

The “arachnid hominid” is an original species comprised of photo-composites built from human and veterinary X-ray films—they are intelligent creatures with human and spider physiology. Hominidae follows the life of one arachnid hominid as she struggles to raise her young in a hostile environment. This emotional and exquisitely crafted experience is set in a world of X-ray visibility and wild anatomical re-imagination, where creatures have evolved in surprising ways.
