Trading Hooks for Hands is an experimental short animation that playfully melds notions of time, species and body. The piece uses rat actors in ode to Joyce Weiland's Rat Life and Diet in North America (1968) but places them within a mutable landscape of object and desire. The piece was presented in the bunker of the Parisian Laundry gallery as a part of the Busy Bodies exhibition.
