Image Statement: We have always imagined monsters, woven them into stories, drawn them on maps. We employ them as agents of malevolence, cast ourselves in opposition as guardians and defenders, and yet we are currently the species most capable of annihilation. I crafted Safer Than a Human in response to human imperfection during the pandemic.
