Amy Stein

Amy Stein’s “Domesticated” not only makes me consider the effects we have on animals, but also about what happens to those of us who live in cities and aren’t exposed to them. Amy explores the domesticated animal in a way where themes of companionship and captivity intermingle until it becomes harder to identify the moral high ground.

Michael Grieve, who writes for 1000 Words Magazine, explains that “nature, within a domesticated environment, is always at odds with our perceptions of it. We become bluntly aware of a certain savagery and barbarianism brooding inside of us, of something lost but at the same time something fundamental to our being, beyond the anthropomorphic version of the natural; something outside of knowledge.”
