It’s not only humans that can feel loss and longing from an unexpected and untimely death. Jing Ying’s work explores the emotional impact of human death on nonhuman animals, subverting the tired ecological trope that nature would be better off without humans. In this beautiful work, a little duck is saddened by the death of a human kin, the reasons of which are left to the reader’s interpretation.

Jing Ying Yeo is a recent graduate from Yale-NUS college where they majored in Environmental Studies and minored in Philosophy. As a queer Singaporean who finds neither their Chinese nor Thai identity very salient, they are trying to reconnect with their roots and ancestry in a bid to also better understand their queer self/community. They are familiar with various academic disciplines in both the humanities and sciences, and enjoy studying the subject they love, the ocean, from these various disciplines. Nowadays, they explore their interest in the humanities outside of their day job in the sciences, but hope to marry them in their life’s work.
