This essay is a meditation on the ways in which the scientific community and the arts community alike are feeling their way through the transdisciplinary subject of interspecies communication and how, in the absence of a single systematic program, both art and science can provide their own platforms to challenge how humans habitually think about communicating with animals.Creature Comforts begins with an exploration oflaboratory animals and their relationshipswith their handlers, and ends with a probing look at the use and inclusion of lab animals in contemporary art.
