In her work “Waving with my phantom limb” Hannah Cooke deals with the virtual subculture of the Otherkin. These are people who perceive themselves as non-human, but as beings like elves, wolves or even disembodied constructs like glitches and galaxies. Especially on the social media platform Tumblr they have found a place to exchange about their identities.
Cooke has created four mobiles for four personalities:
Galaxykin, Wolfkin, Fishkin, Phoenixkin.
