This is a short excerpt of a looped meditation on the collision of human domestic spaces and wildlife embodied in the running tiger. This is an element of the first iteration of Nature as a Metaphor for Economic, Emotional and Existential Horror, presented in 2016 at the BMA. It is clear, the grace and beauty of the moving animal, fast and steady through the design magazine photographs. There is the stark relief of 'animal' against 'civilization'; the rush towards (or away?) from extinction; an implicit metaphor of class; the meditative suggestion of eternally running, moving, stepping through; the counterbalance of these pruned domestic spaces, so set and stable and fixed to the idea of actuality.
