Documentary videoart piece Morrison & Friends depicts interspecies communications between humans and an alpaca. Morrison alpaca works with animal-assisted activities and alpaca therapy, visiting nursing homes with his trainer Tarja Jokinen. As a therapy animal, Morrison is used to interacting with people and he is not intimidated by people working behind cameras. This made it possible to create an environment in the studio where the participants seemingly simply needed to be present. Having all these beings spending time together was the basis for Morrison & Friends.
