Overview

Animality is a permanent installation at PS/IS 861 Staten Island consisting of porcelain enamel panels on 16-gauge steel that loosely illustrate various groups or families of animals – insects, birds, mammals becoming endangered due to climate change. Rather than commemorating the possible loss Simeti created an opportunity for viewers to explore their connection with the magic of the animal world, and possibly foster its appreciation.
