In this series, Zilberberg creates animal montages as an expression of self-therapy. As a person living in the west, moving through a daily life that is sometimes fast-paced and emotionally complex, the artist finds calm in the presence of these wild animals. The animals are placed in serene and ethereal scenes to focus on the beauty of the natural environment. In a world where many are constantly looking to the past or the future, these works aim to have a meditative effect on the viewer, promoting staying still to find happiness in the present moment.
