Hyperzoology was an instillation in Carnegie Mellon School of Art’s 2012 Senior Exhibition at the Miller Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA.

Visitors were assaulted by a loud, heavy, high pitched breathing; two creatures, a tiger and a sambar, hyperventilate continuously in a corner. The creatures periodically experience anxiety attacks, momentarily breaking the pattern of mutual distress, before settling back into synchronized exhaustion.

Animations were hand drawn in Photoshop before being assembled in After Effects. The two loops were run off of one Mac Mini, onto two HD projectors suspended from the ceiling.
