Constant bearing is a nautical term that comes from “constant bearing, decreasing range.” C.B.D.R. is when two ships are slowly getting closer, but maintaining the same relative bearing. If this continues, the two ships will collide. Through animal allegories, his show “constant bearing” speaks about the current climate of the world, whether it be political or environmental. Through it he represents the frustration that he sees from his friends and loved ones and even people that he does not agree with, having to face the new realities that we all are living in.
