"Crude Beauty is a double-sided idea about how we view our world in terms of existence; how we eat, how we kill, how we survive. Most humans have forgoten how crude and real it is to kill another animal, essential for survival. It could be the way we do it that has changed our understanding of life and connectivity to nature. It is also something very beautiful, a way of recycling life, something that humans have abused and in a way taken meaning away from."
