Otherkin

/ˈʌðəkɪn/

noun

noun: otherkin; plural noun: otherkins; plural noun: otherkin

    1    a person who identifies as non-human, typically as being wholly or partially an animal or mythical being.

 

Other Kin is a scrapbook of religious iconography for the future; a future with phantom limbs and teeth and wings and fur and freedom. Published with a risograph printer, a process originally used by churches, political parties and community groups as a cheap and quick way to distribute ephemera, Other Kin documents interpretations of mainstream media by a community of non-humans. Through this documentation the book interrogates the reoccurring theme of therianthropy and zoomorphism in popular culture throughout history, considering the on-screen solidarity it gives to believers in this modern movement of kinship.
