Creative Challenge, Day 26

When creating, sometimes it becomes necessary to take the point of view of different people. Artists may need to consider different perspectives on their work, writers need to be able to get in the heads of several characters at once. But what about animals? Have you ever considered writing or creating art based on the perception of an animal?

Animals are everywhere in this world. From house pets to house pests, from worms to blue whales, there are millions of types of animals that the experience you’re trying to convey can be filtered through. Obviously they don’t have the same height perspective as we have (unless it’s a larger animal), but consider all of the other points of view that would have t change. What senses do they use that we don’t? What colors do they actually see? How does moving around in the environment affect them or challenge them?

Consider that and see what you can come up with!
