Carnevale is a newspaper publication which brings together the voices and expressions of artists, writers, animal behaviour scientists and farm animals. It details an event which took place at Easter Howgate Farm, Scotland’s Rural College in April 2017.

The pigs’ participation was integral to the project. Within the newspaper this is portrayed through photographic documentation and video made accessible by QR code. The video shows the pigs investigative exploration of objects using their bodies and snouts. Through recorded play they reveal an enthusiasm and curiosity to explore novel objects.
