I-Park International 
Artist in Residence Program
Session VI – November 2017  
East Haddam CT

This residency was primarily focused on exploring new materials and ideas around our relationship with predators and what constitutes a predator (includes ourselves) in our natural landscapes.

With no spaces left untouched, the ‘wilderness’ as was once known is changing.  

The following is an example of the new works trajectory. 

* Carnivorous Cervidae (If You Were a Predator You’d be Endangered Instead of a Danger) featured left bottom is a deer skull thats been outfitted with canine teeth to better illustrate the deer’s destructive power due to over population, as a direct result of our decimation of their natural predator the wolf, we have inadvertently created a new ecological threat.
